“Marshall” Showing at the Marin City Library


“Marshall,” a 2017 movie based on a trial early in the ca­reer of the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, will be showing at 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 23, 2019, at the Marin City Library, located on 164 Donahue St. in Marin City.

“Marshall” is directed by Reginald Hudlin, and the mov­ie follows Marshall as a young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a Black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) charged with sexual assault and at­tempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hud­son).

Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish law­yer, Samuel Friedman (Josh Gad). Together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and anti-Semitism. The high profile case and the part­nership with Friedman served as a template for Marshall’s creation of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

The movie stars Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Ster­ling K. Brown, and James Cromwell.

All Library events are free.
