Futorian Went On to Be a Civil Rights Lawyer

After Futorian spent a year and a half volunteering in Mississippi, she returned to Chicago to become a civil rights lawyer after feeling her skin color would limit her. "I thought maybe I could be some kind of catalyst, and lawyers seemed to be good catalysts," she said. Throughout her career, she has focused on death row inmates and capital punishment in Illinois. (Photo:  AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
