WATCH: “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words”

Justice Thomas began life in Gullah-speaking Pin Point, Georgia, suffered poverty and privation in Savannah, dealt with the vicious iniquities of segregation and rose above it all to serve on the highest court in the United States. He was raised by his grandfather, taught by Catholic nuns, yet he rebelled and became a ’60s radical who supported the Black Panthers, only to rethink his way back to his traditional beginnings.
