This memorial is right in the heart of the historic buildings, and it will take you only five minutes or so to see it, but you really should go. I found the memorial to be very moving. It gave me a moment to reflect on how much Thurgood Marshall did for this country.
nice place to walk around

It's free and very informative. Great views & history. The statues are really well done. It's a great place to take pictures and enjoy a crepe from Sofi's!
A place to reflect on the impact of Justice Marshall

We stumbled upon this walking from the parking deck at Calvert & Bladen toward the statehouse. There are multiple sculptures in a circle, It's hard to read the text engraved in the granite on the benches with two of the sculptures and in the circle in front of the standing statue (in fact, we almost didn't see them at all and never could make out all the text centered inside the circle). Make a point to find it, don't just stumble upon it. You'll be glad you did.
Fitting tribute to the late great Justice Marshall

Actually happened across the memorial by chance, and glad we did! It is a beautiful memorial to United States Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, based on his work as an attorney, seeking to desegregate the University of Maryland School of Law. The Memorial is on the mall, across from the state capital and next to the governor's mansion. A bronze statue of Marshall, on a granite patio (with a story explaining why Marshall was being memorialized and his successfully desegregating u of M Law School) is beautiful and a gentle reminder of a dark and sad history in our past. Nearby are benches, with statues of children who benefitted from Marshall's legacy. The mall area is beautiful to see (and one of the prettiest state house grounds areas I have ever seen).
