Robert Lee Carter (March 11, 1917 – January 3, 2012) was an American civil rights activist and a United States District Judge. In 1944, upon completion of his wartime service in the United States Army Air Corps, Carter went to work at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and in 1948 became a legal assistant to Thurgood Marshall.[1] In 1945, he became an assistant special counsel at the LDF. Carter was a lead attorney on Sweatt v. Painter[1] and presented part of the oral argument to the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education. He also worked on many important civil rights cases, including Sipuel v. Board of Regents of Univ. of Okla.. In 1956, Carter succeeded Thurgood Marshall as the general counsel of the NAACP. Over the course of his tenure, Carter argued or co-argued and won twenty-one of twenty-two cases in the United States Supreme Court. Among the most important cases Carter worked on after Brown was NAACP v. Alabama (1958), in which the Supreme Court held that the NAACP could not be ...

Fannie Lou Hamer was an Amerikkkan Afrikan voting rights activist and civil rights leader. Early life Hamer was born on October 6, 1917 in Montgomery County, Mississippi. She was the youngest of 20 children. Her family moved to Sunflower County, Mississippi in 1919 so the family could work on the plantation of E. W. Brandon. Hamer picked cotton, and by age 13 she picked 200-300 pounds on a daily basis. Beginnings of activism During the 1950s, Hamer attended several annual conferences of the Regional Council of *** Leadership (RCNL) in the all-black town of Mound Bayou, Mississippi. The RCNL was led by Dr. T. R. M. Howard, a civil rights leader and wealthy black entrepreneur, and was a combination civil rights and self-help organization. The annual RCNL conferences featured entertainers, such as Mahalia Jackson, speakers, such as Thurgood Marshall and Rep. Charles Diggs of Michigan, and panels on voting rights and other civil rights issues. Without her knowledge or consent, she was sterilized in 1961 by .. ...

Quote if the week by Yaw Asamoah: Black people have NEVER won playing or pushing the race narrative. Anytime we make it about race, we lose. Let's take race out of it, and let facts stand. That's how Thurgood Marshall was able to get more accomplished than Martin Luther King. We win by arguing the facts of the case, not the emotions. We are a minority group; we don't have ANY power; we don't have any influence; we don't control anything.

Anita Koivunen jakoi henkilön Tracy Knauss kuvan. EINSTEIN WAS A CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST AND MEMBER OF THE NAACP, WHO KNEW?! — With recent events of racism in the news, such as that displayed by two owners of NBA basketball teams, and by the gutting of the Voting Rights Act by apparent prejudices of the Roberts's Court, it's appropriate to revisit one of humankind's greatest minds and his views on racism. Dr. Albert Einstein understood the greatest mysteries of the physical universe. He also understood the greatest failings of human behavior. Prejudice. This he knew firsthand as a Jew in pre-World War II Europe. In 1946, the Nobel Prize winning physicist addressed Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the first college in America to grant degrees to blacks. Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall are among its graduates. Einstein declared to the students that "racism is America's greatest disease." And he did all he could to support desegregation and other movements addressing racism. Einstein was a member o ...
"Ain't no rookie mistakes here... I'm sorta like a mix between Tookie and Shakespeare" -Murs The best American ideals are rarely projected in neat packages. For instance, our country is the land of opportunity, but was founded largely by slaveholders. That's duality. And to succeed in America, you must embrace this duality as well as your own. You must respect the business acumen of Andrew Carnegie while also vilifying him for deplorable work conditions and taking advantage of poor folks by exploiting them. You must respect Jesse Jackson's role in Civil Rights history while grappling with the fact that he wanted to castrate the man who is now our First Black President. It's a hard road to track. Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, one of Thurgood Marshall's closest friends on the US Supreme Court, was once an active Klansman. But it doesn't just impact famous historical figures. It's normal folks too. How many folks had a few run ins with the law early on, or suffered from a substance abuse issue early ...
On June 13, 1967, in an act of equal parts courage and smarts, Lyndon Johnson nominated Thurgood Marshall to become the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. His 24 years on the bench worked out very well for America, And no one ever---ever---found a pubic hair on his Coke can.
Have you seen " Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight " ? ( on HBO ) Lots of footage of, and poetry by, young Muhammad and even Cassius. What a fantastic story, of the 8-0-1 Supreme Court Decision in 1971, overturning his 1967 conviction of draft evasion. The ( 1 ) who recused himself was Thurgood Marshall, because he had been a judge in a Black Muslim case. The verdict was very unexpected. The Chief, Earl Warren and most of the court were conservatives. But a young clerk found a precedent, a similar case about Jehovah's Witnesses, that made the decision obvious, almost a No-Brainer… Thanks.

When the slave would talk down on his master he didn't kill him he'd send some ol uncle tom house *** to calm him down .Malcom X According to Bobby Hemmitt, underground Metaphysician and Occultist lecturer, "This Black elite society based on Skull and Bones (Yale) was chosen by the U.S. Government (Illuminati) to run Black neighborhoods." See here: Conspiracy Theorist and Futurologist Steve Cokely, had this to say: "Anywhere there are prominent professional Blacks, chances are they're in the Boule". Martin Luther King and Jesse Jackson are reported to have been Boule members, among many other high profile, successful and moneyed Blacks such as Barack Obama, Bill Cosby, Al Sharpton and Thurgood Marshall. See this: The members of the Boule pose as Freedom Fighters or Civil Rights Activists on the surface. In truth, the elite members are operating for personal gain. The Boule works in concert with their masters in maintaining the grip of Illuminati supremacy on their people. - See more at:

I was reading a magazine article that decried that fact that some 60 years after Thurgood Marshall successfully argued to end the legal basis for school segregation, students of color still lag behind in education and income.  I agree wholeheartedly, and while we get together in certain settings most of us still separate along racial and/or economic lines.

Elliott (filed in South Carolina), Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County (filed in Virginia), Gebhart v. Belton (filed in Delaware), and Bolling v. Sharpe (filed in Washington D.C.). All were NAACP-sponsored cases. The Davis case, the only case of the five originating from a student protest, began when sixteen-year-old Barbara Rose Johns organized and led a 450-student walkout of Moton High School.[16] The Gebhart case was the only one where a trial court, affirmed by the Delaware Supreme Court, found that discrimination was unlawful; in all the other cases the plaintiffs had lost as the original courts had found discrimination to be lawful. The Kansas case wa ...

The Brown case was initiated & organized by NAACP's Thurgood Marshall w/ 150+ plaintiffs from 5 states.
Reading Devil in the Grove...very powerful and compelling book about the cases that Thurgood Marshall handled in the South in the 40s and 50s. Devastating cases with lynchings, towns burned down, KKK riots with government complicity or outright perpetration...I'm up to the part that talks about the inaction on the part of Hoover's FBI...and the attempt to get federal law enforcement to enforce the law...fascinating and complex and infuriating. Never stop learning.
what do we need to know about Thurgood Marshall?

118 years ago, the Supreme Court decided upon and set the standard for "separate but equal" racial segregation in the United States. 60 years and one day ago, the decision was reversed in Brown vs. BOE Topeka. Here's to sixty years of liberty. Happy anniversary, Thurgood Marshall ✊
Thurgood Marshall Rec Center. Football Bootcamp every Sunday @ 3 pm. About to get it in!!!
Was there a bit ago. Thurgood Marshall did it. Got to know his son.
Some people don't think Zoe Saldanha should be playing Nina Simone because she has visible European ancestry while The Lady Simone was African-looking. They have a point in that actors should at least somewhat resemble the individuals they play. No doubt there is also resentment of the favouritism bestowed on those of visible White ancestry by the dominant group. While I understand all that the other side is that this has been going on all along and not always in the same direction. When Sydney Poitier, not just African-looking but dark too (and , no it's not the same thing) played Thurgood Marshall, who looked almost White, it was the same mis-representation of 'you're all called Black, therefore you all look the same'. I just think you have more moral authority if you complain in both kinds of instances rather than in just one
60th anniversary of Brown vs Board of Education hats off to Mr Thurgood Marshall and the many more who help paved the way for equal education of all people
The celebration of the anniversary of Brown v Board of Education means much to all of us. For me it is is a source of personal connection to two people: Louis Redding and Thurgood Marshall. I worked with Lou the last three years of his career in the Delaware family Court and learned so much from him that I will always regard him as one of my informal mentors. My entire court room demeanor much of which is designed to keep calm when really impassioned is me channeling Lou.( Actually its a breathing exercise followed by formality -that requires a second of extra thought-and a deepening of the voice). Thurgood Marshall spoke at my college and law school several times and was an inspiration to me as I began helping in the LGBTQ movement. His former daughter in law was one of my closest friends while in college and law school
Hey everyone Today is the GAME!!! I hope everyone comes out to watch our own play against Maceo. The game will be at Thurgood Marshall Recreation Center at 3pm!! Hope to see you there!
If you like Jazz, please support a native of Missouri City's Chris Mitchell. He is a graduate of Thurgood Marshall High School. He taught himself how to play the sax. He won a Grammy this year and we didn't even hear about it. He is known around the world and I had never heard of him until now while watching the news.

"None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody - a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns - bent down and helped us pick up our boots."-Justice Thurgood Marshall. Thanks for being involved in my journey! I am so thankful for my experience at UVI and what is to come next!
The first case of the five cases that encompassed the Brown vs. Board of Education case was in South Carolina called the Briggs vs Elliott case aka "the Clarendon County" case, which is what I grew up hearing it called. John H. McCray played a vital role in this history making case and was very good friends with Thurgood Marshall. We discuss it in the documentary, Lighthouse and Informer: The Story of John H. McCray. Inbox me if you would like more info.
On a mini getaway with family in Washington State. My mind was consumed this weekend (and on the drive up) with the 60th Anniversary of the Brown decision. Upon reflection of my public school education in Chicago, the goals of Brown missed me...my elementary school was segregated (1 white student), as was my high school (2000 kids, about 4 white students). "All Deliberate Speed", the legal mantra of Brown, was very deliberate, and not speedy at all (Thanks Justice Frankfurter..). It was only by attending college in Iowa was I able to benefit from, and experience multiculturalism educationally (I know, ironic..).But this was the sociological benefit, I've come to recognize there was another adverse impact. In retrospect, my analysis of this landmark decision, and it's effect 60 years later, is not just focused on it's sociological impact on school desegregation. I would ask, what about the economic? Could Justice Brennan, or Frankfurter envision that "white flight" from neighborhoods (like mine) would miti ...

Based on the ground-breaking Brown vs. the Board of Education racial segregation case, Separate But Equal follows a young Thurgood Marshall as a lawyer who argues the racially-charged lawsuit before the Supreme Court. When the black students of Clarendon County, South Carolina are denied their request for a single school bus, a bitter and courageous battle for justice and equality begins. Stars: Sidney Poitier - See more at: FYI: This movie was filmed in Charleston, South Carolina.
To All: Excuse the long post but today is a special day and as I surveyed the photos attached and tears welled up in my eyes at certain photos of my Elders/Heroes, I needed to share this: The NAACP Legal Defense Fund marked the 60th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education with a special luncheon at the National Press Club. The event, which celebrated the 60th anniversary of what is today acknowledged as one of the greatest Supreme Court decisions of the 20th century, featured remarks by the Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr., Attorney General of the United States, and was emceed by MSNBC host, Karen Finney. In addition, there was a conversation with the Honorable Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts and the Honorable L. Douglas Wilder, Former Governor of Virginia, moderated by award-winning journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault, one of the first two African-American students to integrate the University of Georgia. Cecilia Marshall, widow of NAACP LDF founder Thurgood Marshall, was honored with the NAACP ...
Murray v. Maryland (1936) Disappointed that the University of Maryland School of Law was rejecting black applicants solely because of their race, beginning in 1933 Thurgood Marshall (who was himself rejected from this law school because of its racial acceptance policies) decided to challenge this practice in the Maryland court system. Before a Baltimore City Court in 1935, Marshall argued that Donald Gaines Murray was just as qualified as white applicants to attend the University of Maryland’s School of Law and that it was solely due to his race that he was rejected. Furthermore, he argued that since the "black" law schools which Murray would otherwise have to attend were nowhere near the same academic caliber as the University’s law school, the University was violating the principle of "separate but equal." Moreover, Marshall argued that the disparities between the "white" and "black" law schools were so great that the only remedy would be to allow students like Murray to attend the University’s la ...
"This fight for equality of educational opportunity (was) not an isolated struggle. All our struggles must tie in together and support one another. . .We must remain on the alert and push the struggle farther with all our might." Charles Hamilton Houston (September 3, 1895-April 22, 1950) was a black lawyer who helped play a role in dismantling the Jim Crow laws and helped train future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Known as "The Man Who Killed Jim Crow", he played a role in nearly every civil rights case before the Supreme Court between 1930 and Brown v. Board of Education (1954). Houston's brilliant plan to attack and defeat Jim Crow segregation by using the inequality of the "separate but equal" doctrine (from the Supreme Court's Plessy v. Ferguson decision) as it pertained to public education in the United States was the master stroke that brought about the landmark Brown decision. Born in Washington, D.C., Houston prepared for college at Dunbar High School in Washington, then matriculated t ...
SO excited to be a part of a Legal Defense Fund (LDF) event today marking the 60th anniversary of the Brown decision that will include some of the original plaintiffs and beneficiaries like myself. Thanks to the LDF, especially Thurgood Marshall, Constance Baker Motley, Donald Hollowell (RIP), Vernon Jordan and Horace Ward, who is receiving an honorary degree from my alma mater, where he once tried to enter, to no avail. But their efforts made it possible for me to go there and on my journey to the horizons.
"Wax Museum" Friday at Tunnel Hill Elementary Tracie Ellis's third-grade class at Tunnel Hill is hosting a Wax Museum this Friday, May 16, from 9–10 a.m. in the school's cafeteria. Each student has taken on a new identity of a historical figure we have studied this year. Parents are invited and will be browsing the "museum" and listening to different speeches at their leisure. The 21 students, pretending to be "wax" figures, will stand still as a statue until someone "pushes their ON button" and then they come to life. The museum will be in the cafeteria. Visitors may walk around and listen to any or all historical figures that interest them. Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) for 3rd grade cover nine historical figures, so all of those are included. They are Paul Revere, Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Mary McLeod Bethune, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Cesar Chavez. Students will also include other persons of interest they have ...

Allow me to give you an example of "standards" from our current state performance standards "SS3H2 The student will discuss the lives of Americans who expanded people’s rights and freedoms in a democracy. a. Paul Revere (independence), Frederick Douglass (civil rights), Susan B. Anthony (women’s rights), Mary McLeod Bethune (education), Franklin D. Roosevelt (New Deal and World War II), Eleanor Roosevelt (United Nations and human rights), Thurgood Marshall (civil rights), Lyndon B. Johnson (Great Society and voting rights), and César Chávez (workers’ rights). b. Explain social barriers, restrictions, and obstacles that these historical figures had to overcome and describe how they overcame them." Now, you tell me. Should César Chávez and Lyndon B. Johnson be taught in absence of figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? This is why we need local control of schools.

Thought For The Day: “I wish I could say that racism and prejudice were only distant memories. We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust…We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” ― Thurgood Marshall

Words cannot describe how much of a Bozo this guy is. Justice Thurgood Marshall would have probably punched in the mouth."You are undoing everything I stood for. You butt licking fool", Justice Marshall ( I'm putting words in his mouth.)

Today's thought for the day. Modern view[edit] As a result of the jurisprudence of the Warren Court in the mid-to-late 20th century, the Court has moved towards a baseline default rule under which freedom of speech is generally presumed to be protected, unless a specific exception applies. Therefore, apart from certain narrow exceptions, the government normally cannot regulate the content of speech. Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall cogently explained this in 1972: [A]bove all else, the First Amendment means that government has no power to restrict expression because of its message, its ideas, its subject matter, or its content. [Citations.] To permit the continued building of our politics and culture, and to assure self-fulfillment for each individual, our people are guaranteed the right to express any thought, free from government censorship. The essence of this forbidden censorship is content control. Any restriction on expressive activity because of its content would completely undercut the 'profoun ...
