Civil rights icon Thurgood Marshall delivered an early blow to school segregation right here in Montgomery County gaining equal pay for the county’s African American teachers in 1937.

This little-known legal case is often seen as the fist step in Marshall's successful drive to have separate schools for white and black children declared unconstitutional as the Supreme Court did 17 years later in a landmark decision.  This illustrated talk details this remarkable local story and its national significance.  Spoiler alert: the victory came at a tremendous cost to the teacher bringing the case.
