Racial Discrimination

What attorney in the Brown case later became a member of the Warren Court?

Thurgood Marshall, the director of the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Education Fund, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education along with several other noted African American attorneys, such as Robert Carter and Spottswood Robinson III. It was one of 29 decisions that Marshall won before the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson made history by elevating Marshall to the U.S. Supreme Court, making him the first African American to serve on the high court.
