Description
The Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education is widely considered a seminal point in the battle to end segregation, but it was in fact the culmination of a decades-long legal campaign. Rawn James Jr., a practicing lawyer in Washington, D.C., tells the epic story of the two dedicated lawyers who led the fight from county courthouses to the Supreme Court and, in the process, laid the legal foundations of the civil rights movement. Charles Hamilton Houston was the pioneer who became the first African American on the Harvard Law Review, and transformed the law school at all-black Howard University into a West Point for civil rights advocacy. He and one of his students at Howard, a brash young Thurgood Marshall, opened the NAACP's legal office. Together they faced down angry Southern mobs, negotiated with presidents and senators, and convinced even racist judges and juries that the Constitution demanded equal justice under law for all American citizens.

"Root and Branch reconstructs one of the most influential collaborations in American history. With artful prose and careful scholarship, James documents how Charles Hamilton Houston and Thurgood Marshall—first as teacher and student, and later as trusted friends and colleagues—spearheaded the NAACP's epochal legal assault on Jim Crow."—Raymond Arsenault
