LDF's Thurgood Marshall Institute Social Science Review
Launched in 2015, the Thurgood Marshall Institute (TMI) is the multidisciplinary research center of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF). Beginning with the school desegregation litigation in Mendez v. Westminster (1947) and Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Thurgood Marshall recognized that an interdisciplinary approach is vital to dismantling anti-Black racism and effectuating systemic change. While LDF is known for its impact litigation, the Institute complements LDF's educational and non-litigation advocacy by undertaking original qualitative and quantitative research and preserving civil rights history in its renown Archives.

The LDF Thurgood Marshall Institute Social Science Review (TMISSR) echoes LDF's ongoing commitment to accessible and impactful social science research. This virtual repository hosts a diverse array of content, from TMI's reports and briefs to toolkits, abstracts, and podcasts, all delving into LDF's four core pillars: voting rights, criminal justice reform, education equity, and economic justice.

TMISSR isn't just a collection of papers; it's a platform amplifying the power of law, narrative, research, and people, to defend and advance the full dignity and citizenship of Black people in America. By applying social science methodologies, our research aims to be both rigorous and approachable, fostering a balance between academic depth and public accessibility. The papers are published electronically, providing easy access https://tminstituteldf.org/research/publications/. Through TMISSR, our goal is not just to inform but to transform narratives, challenge perceptions and contribute to the creation of a more just democracy for all.
