On this day in history, in 1967, Thurgood Marshall became the first black US Supreme Court justice. He was a powerful civil rights activist his entire life which he continued in his tenure on the Supreme Court.
With the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, it is necessary that we take a look back at the milestones we have accomplished in creating a Supreme Court that represents all of its citizens, not just some. We must look back on justices who moved the bar forward for inclusion, representation, and justice for ALL of the United States citizens. Consider this week’s current event and how you believe Thurgood Marshall would have ruled on Breonna Taylor’s case.
With work and other obligations, it can be hard to find time for yourself. We all have hopes and dreams that we’ve put on the back burner. Use this day to indulge in your heart’s desire. Pull out your guitar from the closet, pick up a paintbrush, anything that deeply resonates with you that will put a smile back on your face.
