Saybrook University distinguished consulting faculty Lenneal Henderson will perform his critically acclaimed portrayal of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall on Saturday August 24, 7:30 pm at the Westin (SFO). Taking on the role of the first African American to serve on the US Supreme Court, this impressive one-man show – coming a few days before the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech on August 28th – will take you deep into the mind of the late Supreme Court Justice as he worked to challenge racial barriers in education, housing, transportation, electoral politics, and criminal justice.
All members of the Saybrook community (alumni, students, faculty, and staff) are invited to attend this event. RSVP here. This special opportunity is part of the residential conference program for the Schools of Psychology and Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Clinical Psychology.
