Clarence Thomas, the Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, is the second African American to serve the court after Marshall.

He was the longest-serving member of the court for more than 30 years. After working as an assistant attorney general in Missouri in 1974, he became the legislative assistant to the United States Senator John Danforth in 1979.

Supreme Court scholars define Thomas’s legal philosophy as originalist because it emphasizes the original intent of the US Constitution and laws. Before he was a judge, he backed natural law principles as well. Thomas was the court member who leaned the most conservatively.

Georgia-raised Thomas was born on June 23, 1948, in a small black community near Savannah, the place founded by freedmen after the Civil War. Born in a middle-class family, he took a formal education and established a thriving fuel oil business.

Thomas describes Anderson as the greatest man he has ever known. Aderson was the person who began taking the family to a farm in the world from dawn until dusk. Catholic Thomas studied at St. Pius X High School for two years.

In 1974, he received a Juris Doctor degree from Yale Law School, graduating in the middle of his class. Following graduating, Thomas attended Saint Louis University School of Law to prepare for the Missouri bar. The Missouri bar admitted him on September 13, 1974.
