Attorney and screenwriter Michael Koskoff will introduce a special screening of the 2017 film Marshall, which he co-wrote with Jacob Koskoff.

In Marshall,  a young Thurgood Marshall faces one of his greatest challenges while working as a lawyer for the NAACP. Marshall travels to conservative Connecticut when wealthy socialite Eleanor Strubing accuses black chauffeur Joseph Spell of sexual assault and attempted murder. He soon teams up with Sam Friedman, a local Jewish lawyer who's never handled a criminal case. Together, the two men build a defense while contending with racist and anti-Semitic views from those who deem Spell to be guilty. (2017, 1h 58m) Register online.
