A marble bust of Chief Justice Roger Taney is displayed in the Old Supreme Court Chamber in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Monday, March 9, 2020. Taney, who came from a wealthy, slave-owning family in Calvert County, Md., led the Supreme Court in the 1857 ruling against Dred Scott, an enslaved African-American man, who had sued for his freedom. House Democratic leaders want to replace Taney with a bust of Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall, who became the first African American to serve on the Supreme Court in 1967. (AP Photo/J.
