Chautauqua 2018: Seeking Justice
“Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.”
With these words, Eleanor Roosevelt asked a complicated question: “what is justice?” Throughout 2018, Maryland Humanities is engaging with this challenging notion. For our 24th season, we celebrate the contributions to the search for justice by bringing three historical activists to life on the Chautauqua stage.
Thurgood Marshall was a civil rights activist from Baltimore who broke barriers as the lead NAACP attorney in Brown v. Board of Education and as the first African American Supreme Court Justice. He will be portrayed by Brian Anthony Wilson, a film and television actor and producer who will perform a scene from the play Thurgood by George Stevens, Jr., followed by a dialogue with Lenneal Henderson. Henderson is an internationally recognized scholar who brought Marshall to life in the 2010 Maryland Humanities Chautauqua tour.
