Abstract

Thurgood Marshall – the famed civil rights advocate, lawyer, and Supreme Court Justice – was renowned for his storytelling, and this Essay revolves around stories – true stories – told by and about him. It is, therefore, a salute to the man by way of storytelling, in hopes that we may learn a few little lessons – some old, some maybe new – from his life.
