This DVD gives an informative portrait of Justice Thurgood Marshall's extraordinary life.
It depicts the life of a man of conviction for equal justice under the law. It also includes information on key influences in his life: father/mother; Charles Hamilton Houston; Howard Law School.
Justice Thurgood Marshall was a drum major for justice. He helped to emancipate America's legal system from shame. He helped America to become legally a more humane nation.

A companion DVD to watch is "The Road to Brown" ... biography of Charles Hamilton Houston.
Also, the DVD's: "Simple Justice" and "With All Deliberate Speed"
Book: Simple Justice : The History of Brown v. Board of Education and Black America's Struggle for Equality ... by Richard Kluger

In my opinion, this DVD should be standard viewing and discussion in all American public schools.

This is the story about a extra ordinary man. About a man who was not afraid to do the right thing. About a lawyer who
did the right thing and made this country a better place to live. Justice Marshall did something wonderful for all people.
He taught us by example that's it's a good thing to fight and use your head to fight with. He fought with the most powerful
weapon we have. Our minds. Justice Marshall made it possible for us to get to know each other. This biography should
be required to be seen in schools all over America, starting in grade 1.

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!
