The Smithsonian’s brand-new Museum of African American History and Culture apparently doesn’t think Justice Clarence Thomas deserves more than a minor footnote. Mark Paoletta writes at The Hill:
The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened to much celebration and acclaim last month, bills itself as the “only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture.” . . . Yet, according to a recent news report, the museum somehow has room for just a glancing negative reference to Clarence Thomas, the only black justice currently sitting on the United States Supreme Court, and only the second to ever do so. This is a shocking slight that the museum must redress.
