In our September/October cover article, "Thurgood Marshall in Tennessee: His Defense of Accused Rioters, His Near-Miss with a Lynch Mob," an incorrect photo was used for the Lawrence County Courthouse of the 1940s (correctly pictured here). Apologies to Lawrence County, as well as to Marshall County, which is the courthouse that was pictured and misidentified.
And if you liked this article, you'll love this 15-lecture podcast-style audio course, also by author David L. Hudson Jr. In this course, Hudson goes into more detail about Justice Marshall, following the trajectory that led Marshall to become a transformational counsel for the NAACP and in 1967 the first African American Supreme Court Justice. You’ll understand why Justice Elena Kagan has called him “the most important lawyer of the 20th century.” Check out "Thurgood Marshall: Mr. Civil Rights and the Fight for Racial Justice."
