He wanted JUSTICE and EQUALITY Under the Law. Was that too much to ask?


Thurgood Marshall is one of the giant figures in the history of American jurisprudence. As the passionate and embattled civil rights lawyer who acted as the lead attorney for the plaintiffs in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KS, he helped win the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legally end racial segregation in the public schools in the United States. He was the first African American to serve as Solicitor General of the United States and became the first African American to serve as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The movie portrays Marshall as an old man as he ruminates and relives past trials and victories and uses Marshall's mastery of language, storytelling and imitation to create a powerful presentation. He is direct without being too rude and he "tells it like it is" without prevarication. His sense of humor and equanimity counteract some of the bitterness he felt in his long journey. His legal arguments and masterful rhetorical style are at once evocative and entertaining. Using Marshall's own writings and reflections, the play explores racism and civil rights and provides an engaging tool to facilitate discussion about these issues, not only in the legal profession, but in society at large.

The movie has four scenes and will be followed by a filmed panel discussion. The program also includes a Moderated Online Discussion via Chatroom , through which attendees can ask questions and engage in a real time live discussion about ethical issues in legal practice and other concerns raised in the movie. In the Discussion attendees are asked to focus on the ethical issues demonstrated in the play relating to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

Written materials are provided in PDF format and may be downloaded by attendees.
