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.
Jan Crawford Greenberg is a legal correspondent with ABC News and author of Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for Control of the United States Supreme Court.

I don't care what anyone says - When I say that I've read a book, even if I've listened to it, it's all the same.
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.
