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.
