Events from History: 13 June 1967

In a landmark decision, President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated civil rights attorney Thurgood Marshall to the Supreme Court on June 13th, 1967. Marshall, a prominent figure in the fight against racial segregation, would become the first African American justice on the highest court in the land. The nomination marked a significant moment in American civil rights history, and his confirmation by the Senate later that summer cemented his place as a champion of equality.
