Description
 
My Grandfathers's Son, A Memoir by Clarence Thomas, is the story of one of America's most remarkable and controversial leaders, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, told in his own words.
  • Hardcover, 289 pages

    Thomas was born in rural Georgia into a life marked by poverty and hunger. At age of seven Thomas and his six-years-old brother were sent to live with his mother's father, Myers Andreson, and her stepmother in their Savannah home. It was a move that would forever change Thomas' life.

    Thomas witnessed his grandparent's perseverance despite injustices, their hopefulness despite bigotry, and their deep love for their country. His own quiet determination would propel him to Holy Cross and Yale Law School, and eventually -- despite a bitter, highly contested public confirmation -- to the highest court in the land. In this candid and deep moving memoir, Clarence Thomas recounts his astonishing journey for the first time, and pays homage to the man who made it possible.

    Clarence Thomas is associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Born in Pinpoint, Georgia, he is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and Yale Law School. He lives with his wife and great-nephew in northern Virginia.
