  • Charleston Stage at the Historic Dock Street Theatre

In 1947, a small group of parents in rural South Carolina set in motion a movement that would eventually lead to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision. The Seat of Justice celebrates the brave citizens of South Carolina who fought for justice and equality in the era of segregation. 

Both black and white citizens including Thurgood Marshall, Harry Briggs, Judge Waites Waring and many others take their turns in the seat of justice making the decisions that will literally change the course of history. Julian Wiles's acclaimed play chronicles this courageous journey of the historic Briggs v. Elliott desegregation case from rural Clarendon County, South Carolina to the halls of the United States Supreme Court.
