This new memoir offers reflections on the nearly eight and a half decades of life of Henry L. Marsh, III. A tenacious spirit (don't say 'can't" or "never") propelled Marsh to overcome formidable obstacles to graduate from high school, college, and law school. A protégé of trailblazing civil rights lawyers Oliver Hill and S. W. Tucker, Marsh helped lead the legal fight to implement the mandate of Brown vs. Board of Education—equality of opportunity for all. A powerful champion in the courts, Marsh successfully litigated cases in state and federal courts.
