About the Film

In 1948, Clarence Thomas was born into dire poverty in Pin Point, Georgia. His father abandoned the family when Thomas was two. His mother, unable to care for two boys, brought Thomas and his brother, Myers, to live with her father and his wife. Thomas’ grandfather, Myers Anderson, whose schooling ended at the third grade, delivered coal and heating oil in Savannah. He gave the boys tough love and training in hardwork. He sent them to Catholic school.
