The Warren Court

SC120305wide_Motley

A work in progress: recreation of two cases arising from sit-in protests at a segregated lunch counter and a restaurant in Columbia, SC in the early sixties. On the bench, left to right, are Justices Byron White, William Brennan, Tom C. Clark, Hugo Black, Chief Justice Earl Warren, William O. Douglas, John M. Harlan, Potter Stewart and Arthur Goldberg. At the lectern is Constance Baker Motley, and behind her, L-R, are Jack Greenberg, Matthew J. Perry and, peeking out the corner, Ralph S. Spritzer. The lawyer for the City of Columbia, David W. Robinson, is seated to the left of the lectern.
