It was one of the most important events in our nation’s history:
the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education to end
legalized school segregation. In the return of this riveting
fictional drama inspired by historical fact, Theatreworks/USA
shows how a courageous young African American girl and talented
NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall (a future Supreme Court
Justice) struggled to challenge the doctrine of “separate but
equal” and fight for civil rights. Celebrate Black History
Month with this “charming, slyly humorous, and totally human
portrait” (The New York Post
) of two great warriors of justice.
