Thurgood Marshall was a game-changer in many ways. The great-grandson of a slave, he grew up to argue the historic desegregation case "Brown v. Board of Education" and eventually became the first African-American to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. His story is the subject of a one-man play, "Thurgood," now in its Bay Area debut being staged by the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre. The show features artistic director Steven Anthony Jones. Jones joins us to talk about playing such a formidable character and about running one of the Bay Area's most prominent theater companies.

Guests:

Steven Anthony Jones, actor and artistic director of the Lorraine Hansberry Theater
