New Repertory Theatre’s critically-acclaimed production of Thurgood is now available to tour throughout New England with actor Johnny Lee Davenport!
Thurgood spans Justice Thurgood Marshall’s impressive career as a lawyer, arguing such landmark cases as Brown v. Board of Education. This impressive biographical work is a remarkable tribute to Marshall’s enduring legacy as the first African-American to sit on the Supreme Court.
