Thurgood is available for school-day field trips

Textbooks may cite cases, names, and dates, but theatre’s unique power is to introduce characters and to bring the cause and effect of history to a human and personal scale. Learn the inspiring story of the first African American to sit on the Supreme Court, and the people and events that influenced him along the way.
