Clarence Thomas

My grandfather's son: a memoir. Harper, c2007.

KF8745.T48A3 2007

 

In this book, Thomas reveals pieces of his life, detailing the suffering and injustices he has overcome, including the acrimonious and polarizing Senate hearing involving Anita Hill, and the depression and despair it created in his own life and the lives of those closest to him. My Grandfather's Son is the story of a man who rose up against all odds to achieve his dreams.
