A few years ago, I began researching for a memoir I wanted to write called Lonely at the Top—a personal journey to understand the legacy I had inherited. As part of this research I met Frank Sander, an 85-year-old retired Harvard Law School professor, also a Holocaust survivor who clerked on the Supreme Court when they decided Brown v Board. He was the driving force behind the creation of a summer program to try to diversify Harvard. It was through this program that my father was able to gain admittance in 1965 to the law school, giving him the credentials he needed to access the private sector.
