Arlinda Locklear ‘73

Locklear knows the law. The first Native American woman to argue before

the U.S. Supreme Court, Locklear has twice served as lead counsel in cases in which the nation’s highest court ruled in favor of tribal parties-seeking justice that has proven elusive and long overdue for many issues facing Native Americans.

With Locklear as this year’s honoree, the Winthrop Roundtable – begun nearly three decades ago as a small gathering of friends in John and Libby Winthrop’s home – continues its legacy of celebrating women leaders, including Martha Ingram, Darla Moore, Cokie Roberts, and more.

The Winthrop Roundtable is the Friends of the Libraries’ signature event honoring the support of its Friends at the Contributor-level and above. In addition to two complimentary VIP tickets to the Winthrop Roundtable, Friends receive year-round benefits.

“We hope this year will serve as inspiration to women of all ages around Charleston— and the world – as to what is possible when you dare to dream and are empowered to achieve.” 
-College of Charleston Interim President Stephen Osborne ‘73
