An Evening with the Hon. Henry L. Marsh, III

Posted on June 20th, 2018 by staff

The Moton Museum in partnership with the Marsh Memoirs Committee presents a historic occasion: An Evening with the Henry Marsh: Book Signing Event. Senator Henry shares how Oliver Hill and Spottswood Robinson influenced his political aspirations. His career under the tutelage of Hill was dedicated to fighting against racial injustice both as a lawyer and then as a politician.

Senator Marsh connections to Prince Edward County are deep. As a young attorney in 1964, Marsh helped to argue and win Griffin v. Prince Edward, the U.S. Supreme Court case that reopened Prince Edward County’s schools and saved public education for the nation.

This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase before and during the event at the Moton Museum Store.
