BONUS: Who is Clarence Thomas?
Play • 22 min

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is well known for his heterodox legal views and willingness to stick to his principles. What’s less known is his incredible story. Born dirt poor in the segregated south, Thomas’s work ethic and intellect led him to Yale Law School, then to becoming Chairman of EEOC, then to nomination as federal appellate judge, and finally to confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice. According to Mark Paoletta, co-editor of a recently released book about the justice, Thomas’s life “is more stunning and amazing than just about anybody in public life as we know it.”

In this mini-episode, the ladies interview Mark, who tells the not often told tale of this often talked about Supreme Court justice.

Special thanks to Mark, whose book “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in his own words” (based on the documentary of the same name) was released this year.
