Dr. Robert Bartlett will share the story of Thurgood Marshall in character! This program is one of our events celebrating Black History Month.

Thurgood Marshall was a fearless attorney, a steadfast believer in the United States Constitution, and a civil rights activist. Marshall fought for stronger gun control, woman’s rights to an abortion, opposed the death penalty, and was an advocate for prison reform. His early life and his opinions were not without controversy. He publicly denounced the efforts of both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. Marshall held fast to his belief in the strength of the law, the courts, and the U.S. Constitution believing them, providing the only sustainable solutions to racial injustice. He would later in life change course on his law-only approach. The story of Marshall’s fearless, relentless pursuit for justice and his life story are full of ageless wisdom. "The measure of a country's greatness is its ability to retain compassion in times of crisis."

Dr. Bartlett is an African American, a retired educator, writer, storyteller, and researcher. He uses history to inform his sociology and the characters and presentations he has developed.

Register and you will receive an email with instructions on how to participate before the event.

Technology requirements: You will need a device or computer with an internet connection and the Chrome browser, microphone and speakers to participate via Zoom.
