You're 100% right about Nina's story,
but Creole's point about Marshall's
fair skin is also very valid.
He represented the NAACP who has a
long history of choosing light faces.
In his day, you were most definitely
thought more highly of solely due
to being light, so the depiction of
him as a darker skinned guy, alone,
is revisionist history on many levels.
