The 2017 film “Marshall,” directed by Reginald Hudlin, stars Chadwick Boseman as Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice. The film focuses on one of the first cases of his career, the State of Connecticut v. Joseph Spell.
“In 1940, Thurgood Marshall is an NAACP lawyer traveling the country defending people of color who are wrongly accused of crimes because of racial prejudice. Upon his return to his New York office, he is sent to Bridgeport, Connecticut, to defend Joseph Spell, a chauffeur accused of rape by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing, in a case that has gripped the newspapers.” From Wikipedia.
The film will be shown in the Heritage Room at Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church, 2710 Newtown Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45244.
