On This Day in History in 1967, Thurgood Marshall was confirmed by the United States Senate as a Supreme Court justice, a place he he served honorably and with high distinction for 24 years. Justice Marshall left his imprint on the Supreme Court of upholding the individual as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. He was the African American to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.
As a lawyer, he won 29 of the 32 cases he argued in front of the Supreme Court, all of which challenged in some way the ‘separate but equal’ doctrine that had been established by the landmark case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). The high-water mark of Marshall’s career as a litigator came in 1954 with his victory in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Thanks to the The History Channel!
