Lunch and film
January 23 , 11:30 am$14 – $16
A lunch and a viewing of the 2017 film, “Marshall,” will be held at
11:30 a.m. at Congregation B’nai Israel, Rumson.
“Marshall” is based on the true story of future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and one of the landmark cases of his life. It follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend an African-American chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hudson). Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer (Josh Gad) and together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and anti-Semitism.
Cost is $14 in advance, $16 at the door. Lunch will be provided by CBI’s chef, Margo Tikijian. RSVP at cbirumson.org or call 732-842-1800.
