    Mr. Civil Rights: Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP

    Presented by at Stillwater Public Library

    September 20 - September 25, 2014


    Mr. Civil Rights: Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP

    Pre-broadcast premier screening of film produced by South Hill Films on Civil Rights. The film will broadcast nationwide on PBS in October.  Mr Civil Rights tells the dramatic story of Marshall's remarkable journey through war and depression in the Jim Crow south, as he set the stage for the 1954 Brown v Board of Education Supreme Court Decision to desegregate America's public schools. With his life in constant danger and even with an attempted lynching, Marshall argued and won more Supreme Court cases than any lawyer in American history! Described by Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan as "the greatest lawyer of the 20th Century", Marshall survived to become America's first African-American Supreme Court Justice in 1967.
