The inside story on the quietest (and most controversial) Supreme Court justice

Clarence Thomas: Created Equal

Clarence Thomas is the longest-serving justice on the current U.S. Supreme Court.

He remains the most controversial—loved by some, reviled by others.

Thomas is also the quiet justice: he almost never asks questions from the bench and rarely speaks publicly.

You probably don’t know more than a few headlines and the recollections of his contentious confirmation battle with Anita Hill.

But documentary filmmaker Michael Pack has secured unprecedented access to Clarence Thomas . . .

 . . . and now you can hear the inside story.

Join us for the live debut episode of Conservative Conversations with ISI to hear from Pack, producer and director of the acclaimed new film Created Equal: Justice Clarence Thomas in His Own Words.

Pack interviewed Justice Thomas and Thomas’s wife, Virginia, for more than 30 hours—the longest interview any Supreme Court justice has ever given. 

Now, in this live discussion, Michael Pack will fill you in on what he learned about Justice Thomas and his remarkable life, including how Thomas . . .

  • grew up in dire poverty in a Gullah-speaking region of segregated Georgia
  • trained to be a Catholic priest
  • became a ’60s radical who supported the Black Power Movement
  • developed his controversial brand of originalism
  • endured a “high-tech lynching for uppity blacks” during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings (a comment Thomas made to Joe Biden)

Michael PackFind out why Pack’s new film, Created Equal, has been hailed as “a marvel of filmmaking” (Washington Post), as offering “rare insight into the mind of a justice known for his reticence on the public stage” (Time), and as a “stunning documentary” (Townhall).
