Thurgood Marshall in Black & White

Juan Williams

Tuesday October 10 @ 7 p.m.

Parrish Auditorium, Miami University Hamilton

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Thurgood Marshall’s appointment as the first African American Justice on the U. S. Supreme Court. Political analyst and former NPR host Williams shares stories about Marshall’s life, his heroic role in the Civil Rights Movement, and his stunning legal success. While Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X may be better known, Marshall’s legacy continues to shape race relations to this day. Juan Williams is a two-time Emmy Award winner and author of Eyes on the Prize, a companion volume to the PBS documentary of the Civil Rights Movement.
