ACTOR CHADWICK BOSEMAN TALKS "MARSHALL" WITH TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT (2841 hits)

Actor Chadwick Boseman sits down with Entertainment Correspondent Tanisha LaVerne Grant to talk about his new role as civil right leader THURGOOD MARSHALL in the upcoming film "MARSHALL" which hits theaters nationwide on October 13, 2017.

MARSHALL is based on a true incident in the life of Thurgood Marshall, when he was a young lawyer, long before his appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. As the nation teeters on the brink of WWII, a nearly bankrupt NAACP sends Marshall to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur against his wealthy socialite employer in a s*xual assault and attempted murder trial that quickly became tabloid fodder. In need of a high profile victory but muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall is partnered with Samuel Friedman, a young Jewish lawyer who has never tried a case. Marshall and Friedman struggle against a hostile storm of fear and prejudice, driven to discover the truth in the sensationalized trial which helped set the groundwork for the Civil Rights Movement to come.
