Film: Mr. Civil Rights: Thurgood Marshall & The NAACP

Civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall's triumph in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision to desegregate America's public schools completed the final leg of a journey of over 20 years laying the groundwork to end legal segregation. He won more Supreme Court cases than any lawyer in American history, making the work of civil rights pioneers like the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks possible.

Larry S. Gibson, professor of law at the University of Maryland-Francis King Carey School of Law, will moderate the post-screening discussion.

The Pratt Library’s African American Film Series is sponsored by the Juanita C. Burns Memorial Foundation
