At another point, he reaches into his briefcase and takes out two baby dolls, one black and one white. This was the famous doll test that was conducted by Dr. Kenneth Clark. It is heart- breaking to hear the results of what happened when black chil- dren were asked which doll they thought was better and which they would like to be. George Stevens, Jr., has put together a wonderful script that never misses a beat. Benny Sato Ambush has done a fine job of directing. I know it is early in the 2017 theatre season, but I can assure you that Johnny Lee Davenport's portrayal of Marshall in Thurgood will be remembered as one of the great performances of the year.
