Thurgood Marshall (July 2, 1908 – January 24, 1993) was a civil rights activist and the First African-American Supreme Court Justice. He served as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from October 1967 until October 1991. He was succeeded by the second Black justice, Clarence Thomas. Prior to his judicial service, he successfully argued many cased, perhaps more than any other attorney, before the Supreme Court (winning 29 or 32 cases), including Brown v. Board of Education.
