"You do what you think is right and let the law catch up." So said Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, who changed the face of American jurisprudence. He argued and won the Brown v. Board of Education decision, ending racial segregation in the schools, after a long and strategic journey that began with ending the "separate but equal" mandate in Maryland law schools. Learn more about the civil rights legend when bio-play Thurgood comes to the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab stage at the Olney Theatre Center. This uplifting, humorous and thought-provoking one-man portrait of an American hero follows Marshall's trajectory from a child in Baltimore to one of the most influential African-American men in modern history.
