On This Day: 1968

The following is the true, previously untold, story of what happened on this day in the history of black America.

During his first year on the bench, Thurgood Marshall became famous for more than just being the first African American Supreme Court Justice. In 1968, Justice Marshall ruled on Sanford v. Son, determining that a junk dealer could not legally change his adult son’s name to “Dummy”.
