Additional Details

The inscription is a quote from one of Marshall's most famous opinions from 1969: "If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a state has no business telling a man sitting alone in his own house, what he may read or what films he may watch. Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving governments the power to control man's minds. Thurgood Marshall, Stanley v Georgia."
