Greetings! I had the opportunity to attend a screening of “Marshall,” based on a true incident in the life of Thurgood Marshall, when he was a young lawyer, long before his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. The film stars Chadwick Boseman (of James Brown “Get on Up” and Jackie Robinson “42” fame) as Marshall. The film sets the stage for a full-blown biography. It is directed by Reginald Hudlin and scheduled for release October 13, 2017.
