Let’s Fill The Theaters Showing The Justice Clarence Thomas Movie

Clarence Thomas Movie
Created Equal: Justice Clarence Thomas In His Own Words
is the best movie you are going to see in a long time, not just for Justice Thomas’ eloquent affirmation of conservative values, but for the movie’s celebration of Clarence Thomas’ indominable spirit.

Watch the trailer through this link.

With unprecedented access, the producers interviewed Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, Virginia, for over 30 hours of interview time, over many months. Justice Thomas tells his entire life’s story, looking directly at the camera, speaking frankly to the audience. After a brief introduction, the documentary proceeds chronologically, combining Justice Thomas’ first-person account with a rich array of historical archive material, period and original music, personal photos, and evocative recreations. Unscripted and without narration, the documentary takes the viewer through this complex and often painful life, dealing with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience.

Everyone thinks they know the story of Justice Thomas’ confirmation – how President George H.W. Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court and how, like the Bork hearings in 1987, the Democrats went after Thomas’ record and his jurisprudence, especially natural law theory, but also attacked his character.

When that failed, and he was on the verge of being confirmed, a former employee, Anita Hill, came forth to accuse him of sexual harassment. The next few days of televised hearings riveted the nation. Finally, defending himself against relentless attacks by the Democratic Senators on the committee, Thomas accused them of running “a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas.” After wall-to-wall television coverage, according to the national polls, the American people believed Thomas by more than a 2-1 margin. Yet, Thomas was confirmed by the closest margin in history, 52-48.

While Justice Thomas’ confirmation hearings would test his character and principles in the crucible of national controversy, they would also confirm Clarence Thomas’ unique place in the pantheon of American conservatives.
