Abstract

This paper argues that the jurisprudence of Justice Thurgood Marshall is enormously important and has been insufficiently appreciated. The paper focuses on Marshall’s view of the Reconstruction Amendments and his development in a number of judicial opinions of the idea of equal citizenship which he believed the Amendments embodied. The paper argues that Marshall’s understanding of the concept of equal citizenship is highly relevant to the problems we face today including the huge economic and political inequality which has developed over the last forty years.
