This evening June and I watched the delightful one man play “Thurgood,” made for HBO in 2011 and released last month on DVD. Laurence Fishburne does a wonderful job portraying the life story of Thurgood Marshall (1908-93), who was an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court from 1967 to 1991.
On the front of the Supreme Court Building are the words, “Equal Justice Under Law,” and according to the movie that was Marshall’s lifelong quest for the African-Americans in the U.S.
As this is Black History Month, if you haven’t yet seen “Thurgood,” I would highly recommend that you try to see it this month, or whenever you can manage to do so. It is well worth seeing at any time.
