Hands On History: Supreme Black History

February 18, 1 pm4 pm.

Happy Black History Month! Celebrate with King Manor Museum as they highlight Thurgood Marshall, the first Black Supreme Court Justice and lawyer in the Brown v Board of Education court case (1954), and current Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to be on the Supreme Court! Rufus King, like them, was a lawyer and has a collection of wooden gavels made from the trees in his yard. Design your own gavel to hold your own mock trials and inspire a future career in the justice system. Be the change! “We deal here with the right of all of our children, whatever their race, to an equal start in life and to an equal opportunity to reach their full potential as citizens. Those children who have been denied that right in the past deserve better than to see fences thrown up to deny them that right in the future.” – Thurgood Marshall “Our children are telling me that they see now, more than ever, that, here in America, anything is possible.” – Ketanji Brown Jackson, 2022
