In 1937, renowned Civil Rights attorney and future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall represented William Gibbs, a Rockville principal suing for equal pay for black teachers.

Gibson will explain how this local civil rights hero helped set the stage for Marshall’s further legal work against discrimination.
