Summary

A brilliant picture book biography about Thurgood Marshall, who fought for equality during the Civil Rights Movement and served as the first Black justice on the Supreme Court, from Coretta Scott King Honor winners Kekla Magoon and Laura Freeman.

Growing up in Baltimore, Thurgood Marshall could see that things weren't fair. The laws said that Black and white people couldn't use the same schools, parks, or water fountains.

When Thurgood had to read the Constitution as punishment for a prank at school, his eyes were opened. It was clear to him that Jim Crow laws were wrong, and he was willing to do whatever it took to change them.

His determination to make sure all Americans were treated equally led him to law school and then the NAACP, where he argued cases like Brown v. Board of Education in front of the Supreme Court. But to become a Justice on the highest court in the land, Thurgood had to make space for himself every step of the way.

Readers will be inspired by Kekla Magoon's concise text and Laura Freeman's luminous illustrations, which bring Thurgood Marshall's incredible legacy and achievements to life.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This informative picture-book biography of Thurgood Marshall begins with his youth in Baltimore, where his family discussed issues such as segregation at the dinner table. Enjoying the challenge and camaraderie of the high-school debate team, he became a persuasive speaker, and he later began a successful career as an attorney working with others to break down barriers affecting minority citizens of all ages. After winning many notable civil rights cases, including Brown v. Board of Education, he became the first Black American to be appointed U.S. Solicitor General and Supreme Court Justice. While concisely telling the story of Marshall's life and his professional milestones, Magoon emphasizes one of his greatest strengths: his ability to collaborate with others working toward a common goal. This approach would serve him well throughout his career. Freeman's well-structured digital artwork uses color effectively and sometimes approaches subjects unconventionally. In one scene, she uses seven images of Marshall (at different ages, wearing different suits) standing to argue significant Supreme Court cases. A handsome, well-organized account of Marshall's life and work."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Magoon and Freeman team up to present this overview of the life of Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall, covering his early-20th-century childhood in segregated Baltimore, his persistent fight against segregation, his initiation as the first Black member of the Supreme Court in 1967, and his death in 1993. Magoon employs a measured tone throughout, emphasizing Marshall's concern with fairness alongside plenty of biographical details, including his two marriages, the second of which defied anti-miscegenation laws. Freeman's layered digital illustrations enrich the narrative. One memorable spread shows a subtly hued time-lapse of Marshall presenting "seven important cases before the Supreme Court," which centers Marshall by depicting the court from behind a row of unidentifiable seated white men. Compelling paragraphs make this an appealing read about a Black figure who had a large and lasting impact on U.S. law. Back matter contains a timeline, major court cases, further reading, and a bibliography. Ages 4--8. (Jan.)"
