'Marshall' Dramatizes Pivotal Case in Famous Justice's Career

'Marshall' Dramatizes Pivotal Case in Famous Justice's Career

At the time, a tireless young attorney named Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Bozeman) was zigzagging the nation on behalf of the NAACP, defending black people who'd been wrongfully accused because of their race.
