Civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall's triumph in the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision to desegregate America's public schools completed the final leg of a journey of over 20 years laying the groundwork to end legal segregation. He won more Supreme Court cases than any lawyer in American history, making the work of civil rights pioneers like the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks possible.

This is a 2014 documentary about Civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall.
After graduating from law school, Marshall started a private law practice in Baltimore.
He began his 25-year affiliation with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in 1934 by representing the organization in the law school discrimination suit Murray v. Pearson.
In 1936, Marshall became part of the national staff of the NAACP.
He became an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, serving from October 1967 until October 1991, and was the Court's 96th justice and its first African-American justice.
It is an inspirational and eye-opening documentary.
