Thurgood Marshall: Civil Rights Leader

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

A trail-blazing civil rights victory in Montgomery County led to civil-rights icon Thurgood Marshall delivering an early blow to school segregation in Montgomery County. Gaining equal pay for the county's African-American teachers in 1937 is a little-known legal case often seen as the first step in Marshall's successful drive to have segregation declared unconstitutional. PowerPoint presentation by Ralph Buglass of the Montgomery County Speakers Bureau. Course #11630; $6/$8
