posted by Billie Owens in events, movies. entertainment, history, Thurgood Marhsall.

Event:  Reel Discussions

Place:  Richmond Memorial Library

Date & Time:  Thursday, March 15th at 6 p.m.

Come view the movie and join us for a group discussion afterward. This month’s movie is “Marshall." 

It follows the young lawyer to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer. Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman. Together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and anti-Semitism. The high profile case and the partnership with Friedman served as a template for Marshall's creation of the NAACP legal defense fund.
