Who is her former husband Clarence Thomas?
Clarence was born in Pin Point, Georgia USA, on 23 June 1948 – his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds American nationality.
He’s known best for having been an associate justice of the US Supreme Court since 1991, when he succeeded the late American lawyer and civil rights activist Thurgood Marshall.
Clarence was raised in Pin Point alongside his one older and one younger sibling, by their father M. C. Thomas who was a farmer, and their mother Leola ‘Pigeon’ Williams who was a housewife; M. C. abandoned the family when Clarence was two years old, and after their house burned down, Clarence and his brother Myers were sent to live with their maternal grandparents in Savannah, Georgia.
Clarence studied at the high school St. Pius X, transferred to St. John Vianney’s two years later and matriculated in 1965, and then enrolled at College of the Holy Cross, becoming the first person in his family to attend college. He was highly active there, and founded the Black Student Union, walked in several anti-war marches, and also watched the 1970 Harvard Square riots. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature in 1971, then continued his education at Yale Law School, receiving his Juris Doctor degree three years later.
On 13 September 1974, Clarence was admitted to the Missouri bar, and joined the staff of State Attorney General John Danforth as an Assistant Attorney General of Missouri – he quit the job three years later, and became a lawyer at Monsanto Chemical Company. He worked for John Danforth once again between 1979 and 1981, then on 1 May 1981, he became an Assistant Secretary of Education for the Office for Civil Rights, after having been nominated by the 40th President of the USA Ronald Reagan. Clarence then joined the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, after having been nominated by the 43rd President of the US George H. W. Bush.
He was voted an associate justice of the Supreme Court on 15 October 1991, which came after a controversy when he was accused of sexual harassment by American lawyer and author Anita Fae Hill; she was the only woman to testify that Clarence had sexually harassed her, but provided no significant evidence that it had happened.
Clarence is also an author, and has published nine books and essays. His first essay “Why Black Americans Should Look to Conservative Policies” was published in 1987, while a couple of his other notable works are “The Higher Law Background of the Privileges Or Immunities Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment”, published in 1989, “Character” published in 1998, and most recently “My Grandfather’s Son: A Memoir”, published in 2007.
