“There is a label for Thurgood Marshall and one for Clarence Thomas, the two African Americans who have served on the Supreme Court,” Ms. St. Thomas said.
The label for Justice Thomas reads, “Clarence Thomas: From Seminary School to Supreme Court Bench.” The exhibition includes his photo and an image of Jet magazine that he appeared on the cover of in 1991.
