New Morgan State student housing complex is a tribute to Thurgood Marshall’s life and legacy

October 18, 2022

The building is a constant reminder of the contributions his great-grandfather, Philip L. Brown, Sr., made while working with Marshall on a lawsuit for equal pay for Annapolis teachers more than 80 years ago. Marshall, who was a civil rights attorney at the time and had not yet been appointed to the high court, represented Philip Brown, who helped found the Colored Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County.
