Looking Black On Today In 1967, Thurgood Marshall Was Sworn In As The First Black Supreme Court Justice

On this date in 1967, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in and became the first judge on the U.S. Supreme Court.

It was a signal moment in U. S. history when African-Americans everywhere realized that one of their own was seated on the highest court in the land. Thurgood Marshall, who had been in the forefront of legal battles on behalf of civil rights and the destruction of segregation, was now going to have a direct role in influencing and interpreting the country’s laws.

Although Marshall had been nominated for the post by President Lyndon Johnson some four months earlier, upon being officially installed, Americans were shown that a judicial system that had often been their biggest obstacle to first class citizenship would now have Black representation.
