As we all know Thurgood Marshall was a Supreme Court Justice, however most of us do know that he was an visionary, innovator, a prolific agent of social change, educator, legal education advocate, and grass roots marketing genius !!!!
In this episode of "It's My House" our guest is Warren Houston of "Know Thy Self Radio". He will educate us on how Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall was a major game changer in the history of the United States, yet a very underated one.
This will be a very educational program, so get your pen and paer out and take notes.
In an exclusive interview on The Hutchinson Report, Thurgood Marshall, Jr., Attorney and former Clinton Administration advisor, and son of legendary Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, discusses the challenges facing the Democrats in the 2012 presidential election campaign. Marshall tells what kind of campaign the Democrats will have to mount to keep Congress and the White House.
Dr. John Hope Franklin is the tie that binds- Not only is he the son of the great Civill Rights Lawyer Buck Franklin he was also an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the historical Brown v. Board of Education Topeka
Dr. Franklin's father Buck Franklin sued the City of Tulsa for passing an ordinance that effectively barred blacks from rebuilding their city, "Black Wall Street" after the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921. Buck Franklin won that suit before the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
His father’s success – and his critical importance to the Greenwood community – became a preamble to the success and importance of the son. Dr. John Hope Franklin became one of the most important American historians of the 20th Century.
As a historian, a scholarly voice working for American civil rights, an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the United States Supreme Court Case Brown v. Board of Education, Dr. Franklin was on Marshall’s team of historians which uncovered a speech written in 1866 by Thaddeus Stevens, (Steven Spielberg's Movie Lincoln (Tommy Lee Jones) the leader of the Aboltionist Republicans who introduced the 14th Amendment.
Steven delivered his speech before Congress Steven said in part: “Where any State makes a distinction in the same law between different classes of individuals, Congress shall have the power to correct such discriminations and inequality.” Marshall and his team argued that the drafters of the amendment -Bingham himself had stated that constitutional provisions should be “writ broad for ages yet unborn.”

Countless TV fans fells in love with Jackée Harry as the hilariously sassy Sandra Clark on NBC’s 227 and Lisa Landry on The WB’s Sister, Sister. But having fun is just half of where it’s at for the comic icon. “I didn’t aim to be on TV. It happened by me studying and auditioning,” she tells Fresh Perspectives Radio host—and fellow Sister, Sister cast member—Rolonda Watts. “I was a history teacher and I wanted to be a great educator. My goal was to impart information to young kids—particularly young girls—to give them self-esteem and awareness when they go out into the world. I went to Long Island University, Brooklyn Center—right across from Junior’s,” adds Jackée, who works closely with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and United Negro College Fund, while currently appearing in two sitcoms, Byron Allen’s The First Family and Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World. “I had a four-year Martin Luther King scholarship. I was a straight-A student. I was a brainiac! And after school I worked for the National Association of Black Social Workers. Then I did plays at night.”
