In honor of the 50th anniversary of the appointment of Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court of the United States, a free performance of George Steven’s Jr’s renowned Broadway play “THURGOOD” performed by Dr. Timothy Golden will be held Thursday, February 8th at 6 pm. at the Gonzaga University School of Law in the Barbieri Moot Courtroom.
THURGOOD depicts the life of Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice, and his role in the historic decision on the Brown v. Board of Education case. THURGOOD won numerous awards when it was staged on Broadway. Learn more…
The goal of bringing this dynamic performance to Spokane is not only to share the history of this great leader with our community but to invite future discussion addressing race matters in our current national climate, and identify how we can follow in the footsteps of the great icons like Thurgood Marshall to advance racial equity in our organizations and in our community.
This is a free all ages event open to the public. We hope you can join us!
