In a rare interview given by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, television journalist and lawyer Jan Greenberg doesn't shy away from asking incisive questions during this revelatory conversation recorded in front of a live audience, in New York City, in October of 2007.
Candid and well-spoken, Thomas waxes eloquently on a diverse set of topics ranging from his radical political leanings in the 1960s, to the criticism surrounding his opinion on affirmative action, to his motivation for writing his best-selling memoir.
This fascinating listen sheds light on this complex and controversial figure in contemporary American history.

Clarence Thomas gave a brilliant and moving interview to a progressive blockhead, Jan Greenberg. Jan is a liberal ideologue of the first water, and was unable to process most of what Justice Thomas was saying. In spite of that, the interview is well worth hearing. No doubt, Justice Thomas had plenty of experience with this kind of thing and navigated it with grace and charm. It's frustrating because Jan misses most of Justice Thomas' points and her follow-up questions come from the echo chamber in her head rather than the person sitting across from her. After hearing this, I went out and bought "My Grandfather's Son" immediately. I just wish there was an Audible version of that, read by Clarence Thomas.
