Editor reviews

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.

Interesting and worthwhile!

This 1.5 hour interview from almost a decade ago by Jan Greenburg gives Justice Thomas the opportunity to demonstrate the incredible intellectual force that he is. It appears to me that the interview is related to the 2008 release of his autobiographical book My Grandfather's Son. That wonderful book was never released in Audible or Kindle formats. Amazon does sell it in paperback format. I appreciate Audible releasing this interview through the 92nd Street Y series.

Wow!!

I would probably be classified as a liberal (what's up with these labels anyway). I really wanted to understand the mindset of an African American 'Ultraconservative' being African American myself and somewhat successful. Well, I have come to the conclusion that the end result is determined by the journey - and what a journey it was for Justice Thomas. He has a place reserved on my study wall right next to Truman, Obama, Einstein and yes Malcolm x.
