Thurgood Marshall Visited Historical Society
Friday evening guests at our January living history program were treated to an outstanding performance called "Thurgood is Coming!" Thurgood Marshall, the Civil Rights Advocate and Supreme Court Justice, was portrayed by Dr. Lenneal J. Henderson. This program brought to us by the Maryland Humanities Council was fantastic and if you weren't there you missed an enjoyable, informative evening. It really seemed as if Justice Marshall had come to visit us in Cecil County as Dr. Henderson dramatically portrayed the Maryland lawyer. Once the formal presentation was over, he took questions from the audience and afterwards greeted everyone there individually. We have one more program remaining in the winter history series as a young girl, Tillie Pierce tells us about the Battle of Gettysburg. Check out our calendar for more details.
