Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall said that he was punished for misbehavior in school by being forced to recite the Constitution, ultimately memorizing it.

 

Marshall was the Court's 96th justice and its first African-American justice. Prior to his judicial service, he successfully argued several cases before the Supreme Court.

 

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Marshall graduated from the Howard University School of Law in 1933.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He established a private legal practice in Baltimore before founding the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, where he served as executive director.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In that position, he argued several cases before the Supreme Court, including Smith v. AllwrightShelley v. Kraemer, and Brown v. Board of Education, which held that racial segregation in public education is a violation of the Equal Protection Clause.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy appointed Marshall to United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Four years later, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed Marshall as the United States Solicitor General.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

In 1967, Johnson successfully nominated Marshall to succeed retiring Associate Justice Tom C. Clark. Marshall retired during the administration of President George H. W. Bush, and was succeeded by Clarence Thomas.
