Description
For 20 years prior to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, a rebellious young attorney with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) struggled tirelessly to combat racism, discrimination, and segregation in schools, transportation, the military, businesses, and voting booths across America. This collection of letters written by future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall during his tenure with the NAACP reveals his extraordinary intellectual development and his relentless efforts in helping secure equality and justice for all Americans. Michael Long traces Marshall's correspondence with the most powerful leaders of his day—J. Edgar Hoover, Dwight D. Eisenhower, NAACP leader Walter White, and many others—providing a window into the history and radical roots of the civil rights movement.

"Lawyers will read this book in total awe of Marshall's accomplishments. It reads like a panoramic, at times kaleidoscopic history of race in America.... Long's collection of Marshall's record of work is beyond impressive."—Washington Lawyer
