This Day in History

As an attorney, Thurgood Marshall argued 32 cases before the Supreme Court and won 29. As the first black justice, he played a vital part to ending segregation during the Civil Rights Movement. And as a human, he was instrumental in shaping society as we know it today.

Marshall was sworn in to the nation’s highest court on this day in 1967 and we thank him for his service and lifetime commitment to our country.
