Marching Toward Justice is part of the Keith Collection, a central repository for the nation’s African American legal history. The exhibit was created to inform the public about the fundamental importance of the 14th Amendment and our nation's ongoing quest to realize the high ideals of the Declaration of Independence. It tells the story of our government's promotion of justice and equality for some while condoning the enslavement of others. Since the inaugural exhibition at the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building in Washington, D.C., the exhibit has traveled to more than 40 sites, including locations in San Francisco, Chicago, Topeka, Boston, Dallas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Hosting the exhibit is the Damon J. Keith Law Collection of African American Legal History. The Keith Collection is housed at Wayne State University Law School.
