Discussion Leader: Anne Hawkins

Topeka playwright Marcia Cebulska's play provides a thorough treatment of the epochal case that ended school segregation in America. Framed as a crisis of conscience for lawyer Thurgood Marshall on the eve of the Supreme Court's hearing of the case and a debate with the ghost of his mentor Charles Houston, the play treats all five cases brought together in the Supreme Court decision and examines the grassroots activism that propelled the court actions. 65 pp.
