THURGOOD MARSHALL
The first Black Associate Justice signs a First Day Cover for the 20-cent American Flag Definitive Issue.
First Day Cover signed: "Thurgood Marshall" as Associate Justice, 6½x3¾. FDC for the 20-cent American Flag Definitive Issue, two 20-cent American flag stamps affixed, postmarked Washington, D.C., December 17, 1981, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Appointed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on October 2, 1967, Thurgood Marshall (1908-1993) was the first Black American Associate Justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court (1967-1991). As Associate Justice, Marshall supported First Amendment rights, opposed the death penalty and argued against any form of discrimination. Previously, as legal director for the NAACP, he had argued the landmark Civil Rights case, Brown v. Board of Education (1954), before the Supreme Court. Marshall won the case, resulting in the outlawing of racial segregation in public schools. Slightly creased, slightly rippled at cachet. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
