John Marshall paved the way for systemic racism and owned 200 slaves. Why are so many schools named after him?

Help us change that.

John Marshall often used legal technicalities and trickery to reverse lower-court decisions that ruled in favor of freedom (see: Mason v. Matilda, Wood v. Davis, Mima Queen v. Hepburn, and Scott v. Negro London)

John Marshall upheld the notion that slaves are chattel property of slave owners (see: Hamilton v. Russel)

Upheld slavery and the slave trade, and ruled against freedom

Said slaves belong to their owners

Denied Native Americans rights to their land

John Marshall often upheld the notion that Native Americans have no claim to their land, often times by simply refusing to hear the case (see: Fletcher v. Peck, Johnson v. M’Intosh, Worcester v. Virginia, and Cherokee Nation v. Georgia).
