    Thurgood Marshall- Thaddeus Stevens - Lincoln Abolitionists

    in Education

     
    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.”

    A Constitutional Right to Dignity

    in Politics

    The closest the Supreme Court has come to embracing the anti-humiliation principle is through its use of the term “dignity.” This link should be intuitive—what, after all, is the opposite of “humiliation” but “dignity”? Ackerman recognizes this nexus, but his discussion of it is tantalizingly brief.26 He acknowledges that the link between human dignity and the anti-humiliation principle may be unfamiliar to American constitutional lawyers, given that, in contrast to other jurisdictions, our constitutional traditions are built around the concepts of equality and liberty.


    Warren was simply calling upon judges, and the rest of us, to make common-sense judgments about the prevailing meaning of social practices. One of the greatest legal thinkers of the era, Karl Llewellyn, persuasively argued that judges couldn’t decide the most humdrum case without relying on this capacity, which he famously called “situation-sense.”It was Louis Brandeis, not Thurgood Marshall, who first used social science to convince courts to consider the real-world impact of their doctrines. As early as 1908, the Supreme Court relied heavily on his famous “Brandeis Brief” in upholding maximum-hours laws for women. During the following decades, the law schools became centers of sociological and economic critique of the regnant legal formalism The Anti-Humiliation Principle and Same-Sex Marriage Kenji Yoshino

    Dr. Janette Hoston Harris is an historian, professor, activist, visionary, and a force for change. While attending Central State in 1960, Harris's case challenging segregation, "Hoston v. the State of Louisiana," went to the Louisiana Supreme Court. Harris's case eventually became part of a larger court challenge, "Garner v. Louisiana," that was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1961; the case was argued and won by future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall in 1962.


    Dr. Harris served as president, 1993-1995, of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. In 1998, she was appointed city historian for Washington, D.C., the first person to hold the post. That same year, Dr. Harris established The Legacy Award program for the DC Hall of Fame. Over the course of her professional career, she has been the recipient of numerous awards for her civic and educational commitment.


    Dr. Harris is member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., an artist, and the author of “Black crusaders in History, Congress and Government: Teacher's Guide” and other books. She is happily married to Dr. Rudolph Harris.
