Academy of Music Theatre presents New Repertory Theatre's Production of Thurgood by George Stevens, Jr. at the Hampshire Council-Gov courthouse in Northampton.
Directed by Benny Sato Ambush and featuring actor Johnny Lee Davenport, Thurgood spans Justice Thurgood Marshall's impressive career as a lawyer, arguing such landmark cases as Brown v. Board of Education, and is a remarkable tribute to Marshall's enduring legacy as the first African-American to sit on the Supreme Court.
There will be a 20 minute Q&A after the performance with actor Johnny Lee Davenport.
