Board of Education before the Supreme Court in 1954. When in 1960 Kenyan independence leaders asked him to help write their constitution, Marshall threw himself into their cause. In Exporting American Dreams, Mary Dudziak recounts the untold story of Marshall's journey to Africa. African Americans were enslaved when the U.S. constitution was written. In Kenya, Marshall could become something that had not existed in his own country: a black man helping to found a nation."--Jacket.
