Marilyn Mosby can now add a Vogue profile to her long running list of accomplishments.
The Baltimore City State’s attorney became a national figure after filing charges against polices officers in the death of Freddie Gray.
Vogue’s July edition features a stunning photograph of the 35-year-old prosecutor sitting in her office and a candid interview where she discusses her long-held desire to reform the criminal-justice system.
As one of the youngest African-American prosecutors in the country, Mosby is currently a central figure in the fight against police brutality.
“There have been decades of failed policies: zero tolerance and harassment and people being locked up for small crimes,” she tells Vogue. “Policies that drive a divide between communities and law enforcement.
