Honoring U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall

On May 12, 2015, the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, together with the City of Bloomington Human Rights Commission, and the Minnesota Chapter of the Federal Bar Association screened the documentary “Mr. Civil Rights” at the Bloomington Civic Center Plaza. The documentary about the life and career of Thurgood Marshall originally aired in February of 2015 on TPT.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion with the film maker, Mick Caouette, Chief Judge Michael J. Davis, District Judge Donovan W. Frank, Minnesota Court of Appeals Judge Kevin Ross, and Dr. Josie Johnson, who has spent a lifetime as a leader in the civil rights movement.
