Publisher's Summary

In 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first African American appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court. But Marshall had already earned a place in history - as the leader of the legal campaign against racial segregation, which culminated in the landmark Brown v. Board decision. This project traces Marshall's life as a lawyer and justice.

Very special.

In all respects meaningful and soul stirring. Thank you. (Black female lawyer, born 1958, bused to segregated elementary school.)
