Thurgood at Theatrical Outfit

None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.-Thurgood Marshall

My favorite theatre in Atlanta,Theatrical Outfit, just started a new season and the theme is Hope. I was asked to use my talent to costume the production of Thurgood. Played by theatre vet Geoffrey D. Williams this one man show tells the story of Thurgood Marshall the first African American to have a seat in the Sepreme Court Justice. This play comes at a crucial time in our country with so much racial and political divide it exemplifies not only hope but solutions.Read a more detailed description from TO website below:

Based on the life and career of the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, this riveting narrative charts Thurgood Marshall’s evolution from back-alley Baltimore, to Howard University law school, to his fight for equality in the South, all the way to a seat on the highest court in the land in 1967. In addition to his victorious challenge of segregation in Brown vs. Board of Education, humorous and inspiring milestones of Marshall’s journey reveal the remarkable brilliance, perseverance and hope of one of the greatest American heroes of all time.
