Greenberg represented Martin Luther King Jr., but was best known for his role in litigating Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark 1954 civil rights case in which the high court rejected “separate but equal” public schools for blacks and whites. He also handled hundreds of cases in the lower courts on issues including school desegregation, equal employment, fair housing, and voter registration. Greenberg had been the sole surviving member of the team of attorneys who litigated Brown. Greenberg was a beloved professor and mentor who was a member of the Columbia Law School faculty for more than 50 years.
