Thurgood Marshall's entire legal career was devoted to pursuing equal justice for all. He argued 32 cases before the Supreme Court and won 29 of those cases, including his most significant, Brown v Board of Education in 1954.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy appointed Marshall to the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals. In 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed him U. S. Solicitor General. Two years later, President Johnson appointed him to the U.S. Supreme Court where he served until 1992.
