The Right Hand
The Achilles Heel
Thurgood Marshall had a very strong vision for the future. He believed that every person deserved equal treatment and a strong education.
A child born to a Black mother in a state like Mississippi... has exactly the same rights as a white baby born to the wealthiest person in the United States. It's not true, but I challenge anyone to say it is not a goal worth working for.
In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.
These quotes show that he respected all men as complete equals and knew what he had to do to make the situation better.
Thurgood respected all men and felt that the way they were treating African Americans was completely unfair.
He loved to be a lawyer to the cases that deal with segregation, he loved to go to school, and he enjoyed having a position in the government to fight the separate but equal doctrine
He was strong in his knowledge of law and knowledge of previous cases. He knew how the laws worked and what was unconstitutional
Thurgood was a supreme court justice, 32nd united states solicitor general, and judge of the US court of appeals for the second circuit.
Lawyer in Brown v. Board of Education, first African American Supreme Court Justice, instigated charges of racism within the US military.
Thurgood's weakness is that he was willing to put himself in harms way to finish his jobs. He traveled across the world in the middle of wars, to help other people.
He followed his university teacher, who got him into law and politics. He was also inspired by the university of Maryland, who turned him down and inspired him to fight segregation. He also loved his brother and his father who got him into school.
