Twenty-five years ago this month, the nation watched as a federal judge from Savannah, Georgia named Clarence Thomas went through a grueling confirmation hearing to the U.S. Supreme Court. The hearing became a media circus after a young law professor named Anita Hill was called into testify. The nation watched in disbelief as Hill described in graphic detail her allegations of unwanted sexual advances by Thomas.

Since being confirmed to the court in 1991, Justice Thomas has considered some of the biggest cases in our nation’s history. We looked back on his tenure with law professors Tanya Washington of Georgia State University and Stephen Gottlieb of Albany Law School.
