Editorial Reviews

As a civil rights lawyer in the '40s and '50s, he turned the floor of the Supreme Court into his personal battleground. As a member of the court, he presided over some of the most influential decisions in American history. Thurgood Marshall grew up with a strong sense of justice and the courage to fight for his convictions. While a mid-century black lawyer, he traveled the South as a lonely warrior in the battle to end discrimination, the embodiment of hope for black Americans. Through archival footage, period accounts, and candid interviews with colleagues and family, THURGOOD MARSHALL: JUSTICE FOR ALL chronicles the monumental life of the first African American to sit on the Supreme Court. BIOGRAPHY® proudly presents the comprehensive story of the legendary jurist and civil rights activist who stood up for his beliefs and watched them triumph. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

If you are a fan of African-American history and know the importance of Justice Marshall, then not much is new here. However, this documentary would be great for those unfamiliar with him, especially African-American young students. Not only did he help to end legalized segregation, but he had many wonderful qualities. He was a great speaker, an awesome writer, a hard worker, and devoted family man, and much more. He was the valedictorian of his law class and had judicial experience, so conservatives cannot maintain that yap-yap that he "wasn't qualified." This documentary reiterates what a hero he should be to many.

According to Rachel Moran, most interracial couples are made of one person of color and one white person. Interracial couples composed of two people of color do not get enough coverage in the United States. Many people have forgotten that P. Diddy was with J. Lo. Many people do not know that Carlos Santana's wife is African American. So this documentary shows Justice Marshall's Asian-American wife, but never lists her ethnicity. (Was she Thai-American?) It never mentions if they had difficulties living as a Black-Asian couple. The couple's sons are interviewed and they have visible Asian features. I wonder if the documentary makers assumed that Asianness speaks for itself here. Still, this is an avenue that they should have explored, especially in light of the celebration of multiculturalism and mixed-race families, yet they did not.

This documentary includes interviews from Blacks and whites, women and men. It turns out that Juan Williams wrote Marshall's biography. I had only known of him as a journalist. I am impressed that he could complete such a difficult task, unrelated to his typical work.

This is a very important peice of History for our younger generation, who knows nothing of our first ever african american chief justice on the Supreme Court. Many younger person are aware of the renaming of BWI airport in his honor but they are not old enough to remember the civil rights cases and battle which he fought before becoming a chief justice on the supreme court.The biography is short in length, but gives you a look into his upbringing, and how he worked his way to beoming an accomplished attorney and then being appointed to the court. Also, the excerpts from various other biographies done by the History Channel and other specials helped to bring things together.

This is a wonderful, entertaining, and informative video about Thurgood Marshall. I am a graduate student and presented the video to other graduate students in a Diversity class that I was co-teaching. The video spurred thoughtful discussion and critical thinking... I highly recommend it!
