    *Starred Review* Was Thurgood Marshall a born lawyer? Well, six-year-old Thoroughgood made a strong enough case to convince his parents "to legally change his name—to Thurgood." Growing up in 1920s Baltimore, he attended segregated schools and experienced racial injustice. But his father took him to courtrooms to watch trials and, at home, challenged his son to argue positions and back them up with facts. Later, as a lawyer, Marshall would channel his anger at injustice into well-honed arguments in the courtroom, where he overturned legal precedents and won 29 cases before the Supreme Court, including Brown v. Board of Education. The book concludes with him becoming America's first Black Supreme Court justice. By framing this biography as a series of facts and including inequitable practices endured by African Americans during the period, Winter sets a tone well suited to Marshall's life story. Personal anecdotes give the facts context as well as emotional resonance. Collier contributes a series of powerful watercolor-and-collage illustrations, creating dramatic effects sometimes in the expressions, body language, and gestures of people, but also through the dynamic use of form and color. An appended note offers additional biographical information about Thurgood Marshall and his monumental strides toward racial justice. A memorable portrait of a legal giant. Grades 1-4.
