David Garrow On Clarence Thomas

David Garrow, author of among other books a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., reviews Ken Foskett’s new book, Judging Thomas: The Life and Times of Clarence Thomas, in the current issue of The New Republic. The review is favorable to the book and even more favorable to Thomas himself, and agrees forcefully with the justice that a black man has just as much right to be a conservative as anyone else (what a radical idea!).
