February is African American History Month, so I thought I’d work on a few drawings of people whose stories inspired me when I was growing up.
Here’s a drawing of a young Thurgood Marshall. The grandson of a slave, he became the first African-American Supreme Court Justice. He served from 1967 – 1991. Here’s a short biography of Justice Marshall from the Center for History and New Media.
Update: Here’s another drawing I made of Justice Marshall for Black History Month 2013.
