“Vice President Harris has pointed to Justice Thurgood Marshall as an inspiration for her professional career as a lawyer,” Harris’s office said.
The bust was created by Dr. Randolph Craig, a black artist who worked in the University of Maryland Art Department, according to Above the Law .
Marshall was a Supreme Court justice from 1967 to 1991. Before that, he was solicitor general of the United States and a federal appeals court judge. He died in 1993.
Harris swore in on two Bibles during her inauguration ceremony, one of which belonged to Marshall.
