Documentary on Only Woman in 1940s Law Class Premiering on SDPB
The 30-minute “Amazing Grace” explores the life, challenges and success of Missouri attorney Grace (Steinberg) Day, who graduated from USD in 1949. She was the daughter of Polish immigrants who grew up working in her father’s shoe store in Onawa, Iowa, and dreamed of something more. When she enrolled in USD School of Law, she was the only female student in an industry that did not welcome women.
“Amazing Grace” premieres on SDPB1 at 8:30 p.m. CDT on Thursday, June 16, and will be replayed at 1:30 p.m. CDT Sunday, June 19.
The documentary was screened on the USD campus in April and Day was featured in the most recent South Dakota Lawyer magazine.
