This is a really good look at the confirmation process of Thurgood Marshall Haygood details the players that helped and hindered Marshall s confirmation It was clear that LBJ was Marshall s champion and may have been the sole reason Marshall made it to the high court There were those that did their best to keep Marshall from donning the big black robe Dixiecrat senators McClellan Ervin and Thurmond spearheaded by Senator James Eastland did their best to break down Marshall during the confirmation hearings and show him as unualified Eastland would postpone the hearings or flat out not show up to go out on a campaign against Marshall across the south LBJ did his own campaigning to make sure the needed votes were there and convince dissenters not to vote Marshall certainly was ualified for the Supreme Court on his own merits but he needed that push and support from LBJ to become the first African American Solicitor General and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in an age of segregation and the fight for civil rightsThis is one of those books that reads like a novel Very enjoyable Haygood does go off on a few tangents and does not always come full circle after introducing various players in Marshall s life or cases that he might have argued They didn t seem to have a relevance to his actual confirmation however the information was interesting

Showdown is not a standard biography Haygood frames the book through the confirmation fight of Thurgood Marshall The author provides flashbacks to provide information of the life of Thurgood Marshall and the various Senators of the Justice Committee The suspense build and build as Marshal faced off against a wolf pack of Southern Senators who were determined to block his nomination to the Supreme Court in July 1967 President Johnson let these white supremacist senators know he would just continue to nominate one black person after another in a showdown with the DixiecratsHistorically only a handful of Supreme Court nominees had faced much scrutiny from the Senate until the Marshall hearings in 1967 which changed all nominations since then The Chairman of the Judicial Committee was an unabashed white supremacist Senator James Eastland of Mississippi Eastland s father lead a lynching of a black man on his cotton plantation and his daughter was crowned Miss Confederacy in 1956 Eastland conducted the hearings with open hostility of Marshall Marshall faced one after the other of the old Southern bulls of the Committee such as Strom Thurmond and Sam Ervin Everett Dirksen a Republican led a coalition of Senators to successfully confirm Marshall s appointment to the Supreme CourtThe book is well written and well researched Haygood does a good job avoiding getting mired in legal jargon If you are interested in Civil Rights or the Supreme Court this is a must read for you Reading this book and listening to the current news I am struck that this country has not changed its racial prejudice until now I had believed we had overcome our racial prejudice and fear of people that have different believes but current events have proved me wrong I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible Dominic Hoffman did an excellent job narrating the book his accents were good except for that of Robert and Edward Kennedy

Wil Haygood ☆ 2 Download Free read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Wil Haygood Characters Showdown H Carolina senator Sam Ervin who tried to use his Constitutional expertise to block Marshall’s appointment; Senator James Eastland of Mississippi the head of the Senate Judiciary Committee who stated that segregation was “the law of nature the law of God”; Arkansas senator John McClellan who as a boy after Teddy Roosevelt invited Booker T Washington to dinner at the White House wrote a prize winning school essay proclaiming that Roosevelt had destroyed the integrity of the presidency; and so many others This galvanizing book makes clear that it is impossible to overestimate Thurgood Marshall’s lasting influence on the racial politics of our nation. The core story of Thurgood Marshall s 1967 nomination to the US Supreme Court and his confirmation by the US Senate is not that long So author Wil Haygood breaks it up with chapter long digressions to recount the lives of key figures in the drama Marshall himself President Lyndon Baines Johnson racist Senators James Eastland John McClellan Sam Ervin and Strom Thurmond and others Normally this kind of structure becomes tedious but here it works really well and the confirmation fight becomes a window on the period As a history much of this book is written from secondary book sources supplemented with some interviews and cites to some contemporary news articles What the book brings of value is not original research but an informed synthesis that tells the story well and puts it in contextHaygood makes it clear that the way Southern white power structures fought tooth and nail to derail delay or obstruct the appointment of a profoundly ualified black attorney and judge to the Supreme Court was just one component of a much longer effort to defend white supremacy It s particularly striking that while constituents and local officials expressed bluntly racist views and many of the Senators opposing Marshall s nomination had too previously in the confirmation hearings all the lines of attack were about crime threats to public order communism and the role of the court We ve made some important progress since this time but the techniue of saying racist things without saying them directly is still frustratingly present in our national politics and it s illuminating to see how it was practiced by avowed segregationists from the start
