Since 1909, the NAACP has maintained a legendary legacy for fighting legal battles to win social justice for all Americans — many of the most significant of which were fought and won under the leadership of Charles Hamilton Houston and his student and protégée, Thurgood Marshall. Marshall went on to make even more history, serving as the 96th justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from October 1967 until October 1991 as its first African-American justice.
