Meet the Author: Larry S. Gibson
Larry S. Gibson discusses Young Thurgood: The Making of a Supreme Court Justice, the first close examination of the formative period of Thurgood Marshall's life in Baltimore. Hailed by historian Taylor Branch as, "a triumph of discovery and restraint," Young Thurgood reveals details about Marshall's family, youth, and education. It deepens our appreciation of this 20th century icon who transformed the nation's legal landscape by challenging the racial segregation that relegated millions to second-class citizenship. Gibson is a professor at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.

Gibson has been on the faculty at University of Maryland for 39 years and is also a practicing lawyer with the firm of Shapiro, Sher, Guinot & Sandler. Among his many accomplishments was legislation that renamed Maryland's major airport the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Books available for purchase and signing. Sponsored by Friends of Howard County Library. In partnership with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Columbia, MD Alumnae Chapter. A "Meet the Author" event.
