Location: Cab Calloway Room - Parlett L. Moore Library
Time: 11:00 - 13:00
Professor Larry S. Gibson will discuss and sign copies of his book, Young Thurgood, on May 6, at 11am, in the Cab Calloway Room-Parlett L. Moore Library.
Thurgood Marshall was the most important lawyer of the twentieth century. He transformed the nation's legal landscape by challenging the racial segregation that had relegated millions to second-class citizenship. Marshall's personality, attitudes, priorities, and work habits had crystallized during earlier years in Maryland. Young Thurgood: The Making of a Supreme Court Justice is the first close examination of the formative period in Marshall's life.
The only biography of Thurgood Marshall to be endorsed to Marshall's immediate family, Young Thurgood is an exhaustively researched and engagingly written work that everyone interested in law, civil rights, American history, and biography will want to read.
