Very humourous in spots and a MUST SEE 4 any HS Civics or Intro to Law class. Marshall paved the way for what is now a far more diverse Supreme Court, but, sadly, not much has really changed overall. The set was very reflective of a simple man with a powerful mind and drive. Craven, himself, is a very fine actor who I saw in August Wilson’s “Jitney” last Fall at Penumbra Theatre.

This Thurgood is genial and avuncular, a man with a sharp sense of humor and a briefcase full of illustrative stories.

We know about Martin Luther King and about Malcolm X.

What do you know about the other visionary leader of the Civil Rights' Movement: 

Thurgood Marshall?

Coming from a childhood in Baltimore, Thurgood Marshall became a lawyer and eventually a Supreme Court Justice. Thurgood was a one of the architects of the American Civil Rights Movement including the landmark Brown vs Board of Education case. This is an eye-opening, humorous and uplifting portrait of a true American hero.
