Lester Purry and Lou Bellamy return to the Playhouse for Thurgood – the inspiring story of the first African-American to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. From his early days as a civil rights lawyer arguing the landmark case of Brown vs. Board of Education to the end of institutionalized segregation, Thurgood spans the impressive 58-year career of Justice Thurgood Marshall all the way to his appointment to the highest court in the land.
