SynopsisThe childhood of civil rights hero and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall comes to life in this engaging biography.

By the time he was twelve, he had most of it memorized, and his interest in law had begun to take seed. In 1967 he was appointed to the US Supreme Court&;the first African American to serve in that position.
