Marshall

His Name Means Justice.


Marshall
Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. This film takes a look at his greatest challenge in those early days, a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman, a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur accused by his white employer of sexual assault and attempted murder.
