Joshua returned to the South after living in the North East for over decade, most recently in Brooklyn, NY. He is a native of Memphis, TN, and his parents are natives of the Mississippi Delta.

Joshua studied literature and economics at Vanderbilt University and law at Boston University, where he was a member of the Law Review.  Afterwards, he practiced complex corporate litigation at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP in New York.  Passionate about fairness, justice and equality, Joshua moved from corporate to civil rights law and to the ACLU of Mississippi.
