This afternoon, Duquesne University will be hosting a “historic event” that looks at the landmark Brown vs. Board court case. John Marshall, son of Thurgood Marshall, and Charles Hamilton Houston Jr., son of Charles Hamilton Houston, will both be in attendance for a brief movie about the achievements of their fathers in the Supreme Court case. The movie will be followed by discussion of the case and its repercussions with the audience.
Ken Love, who produced the movie, says it was an honor to work with these men, who also contributed to the film. Marshall introduced the movie and concluded it, while Houston Jr. narrated throughout. Love says it’s especially remarkable because these two men have never collaborated before.
Admission is free and open to the public.
