Once-segregated West Baltimore elementary school transforming into tribute for Justice Thurgood Marshall

February 2, 2023

A once-segregated elementary school in west Baltimore is in the process of transforming into Justice Thurgood Marshall Amenity Center. The aging structure in the Upton neighborhood will soon become a place with various cultural activities and programs. The 150-year-old building is getting a makeover to honor the legacy of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall who attended the school in 1914. Dr. Alvin Hathaway, who has spent his life serving his church and community and after years of pastoring the Reverend, is directing his efforts into community revitalization. The two-story building has been abandoned since the 1990s and most recently withstood a fire that nearly destroyed it.
