Join Preservation Virginia’s John Marshall House and the Moton Museum for a presentation on judicial review and Civil Rights. Panelists will explore how judicial review originated on the Marshall Court in 1803 and its impact on five court cases in the decades to follow. This program will trace how the United States legal system evolved in jurisprudence from pro-slavery Chief Justice John Marshall who worked to prevent Black freedom in the 19th century, to R.R. Moton and the desegregation of American schools in the mid-20th century.
“From Marshall to Moton: Judicial Review and Civil Rights” will be held in-person at the Moton Museum (900 Griffin Blvd, Farmville, VA 23901) as well as live streamed. Light refreshments will be provided for the in-person event.
