On Saturday, the hall welcomed the Activist and Educator as well as U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor into its ranks. Davis was a Black Panther during the height of the civil rights movement and continues to promotes equal rights, social justice and women’s rights.
Sotomayor, who broke ground as the first Latina woman to sit on the nation’s highest court, was also inducted. Women from various backgrounds and professions were on hand in Seneca Falls, New York. A panel of experts chose the nominees from a list created by the public.
