Publisher's Summary

Drawing on historical documents and exclusive interviews, authors tell the inspiring story of Clarence Thomas's rise from a childhood of poverty and prejudice in the segregated South to Supreme Court Justice. Companion to blockbuster documentary Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, but a fascinating stand alone listen, as well!

*The full story behind the wildly successful documentary film, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words*

Born into dire poverty in the segregated South and abandoned by his father as a child, Justice Clarence Thomas triumphed over seemingly insurmountable odds to become one of the most influential justices on the Supreme Court. Yet after three decades of honorable service, few know him beyond his contentious confirmation and the surrounding media firestorm.

Who is Justice Clarence Thomas, in his own words? 

In the follow-up to the wildly successful documentary by the same name, Created Equal builds on dozens of hours of groundbreaking one-on-one interviews with Thomas to share a new, expanded account of his powerful story for the first time.

Producer Michael Pack and Mark Paoletta, a lawyer who worked alongside Thomas during his confirmation, dive deep into the Justice’s story. Drawing on a rich array of historical documents and unreleased conversations with Thomas, his wife, and those who knew him best, Created Equal is a timeless account of faith, race, power, and personal resilience.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Justice Thomas, the epitome of a “Real American Man”!

If ALL young American boys/men aspired to emulate the life of Justice Thomas, AMERICA would continue to be a force for good in this world. Those who seek to destroy us, Instead teach our boys to be girls and out girls to be boys.

America's best Supreme Court Justice

I was a very young man, maybe 23, when Thomas was appointed to the Supreme Court. He was an affirmative action placement because, bright as he is, he did not have the resume for the job at the time it was awarded. That just tells me how weak resume-evaluations can be... because he is an incredible man with an incredible history. He's smart. He works hard. He's humble. He's kind. He adheres to the constitution as best he can. He epitomizes what it is to be an American.

Read This Book

I have known for years who Clarence Thomas is… or so I thought. I Love this book. Created Equal speaks to me in ways I did not expect. I have been listening on my commute and even though I am not quite finished, I knew when I got to work this morning I would write a review. I am frequently smiling as I listen & this morning there was enough emotion I could physically feel it in my chest. Yes there is a lot of Tar & there is a lot of feathers. If we let this country go it will be our own fault. You should read this book!

required reading

This is a extremely good book and very easy to listen to.
I knew very little about Clarence Thomas other than the fact his confirmation hearing was a complete circus. This story is truly an American story. It can only happen in America.

Enlightening & Moving

Despite my age, I've known nothing of Clarence Thomas other than he's a Constitutional Justice, and the Anita Hill crap from 1991. I jumped into the audio book after watching the movie of the same title. I found the book to be enlightening, and very moving. I now recognize Justice Thomas as a great, and humble, man who truly lived the American dream; creating an honorable life through effort and perseverance, not handouts and affirmative action programs. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys biographical reads, who have an interest in Constitutional law, and/or a desire to learn about this incredible man. Performances were also great for Justice Thomas and his beloved wife, Ginny.
