African Americans Making History

In the bio-pic MARSHALL, Chadwick Boseman plays future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in his early days as a take-no-prisoners attorney for the NAACP. It's taken Hollywood a while, but in the last few years they've finally started producing bio-pics worthy of these African Americans who broke ground in politics, civil rights, sports, and the arts.

Marshall List

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, MARSHALL, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.
