Thurgood Marshall was the first African American Justice to the Supreme Court. (click here)
This is his memorial in Annapolis, Maryland.
If Ted Cruz (click here) wants to lobby to put Clarence Thomas in the Africn American Museum he needs to seek to place Thurgood Marshal there as well.
The African American Museum is about their history in this country. There is one picture of Thurgood Marshall in the museum.
Placing any article in a museum is a costly project. if Ted Cruz wants to have an exclusive place in the museum for African American Supreme Court Justices, he should organize a non-profit and raise money for obtaining artifacts and then developing the space in the museum.
Print of Louis J. Redding and Thurgood Marshall.
Stop short changing the Justices by simply complaining; do something to make it happen that benefits the museum.
Ted Cruz should know the federal monies available to museums has been reduced over time.
This study was conducted in 2008, but, it is a good starting point for Senator Cruz.
