Clarence Thomas, (born June 23, 1948, Pinpoint, near Savannah, Georgia, U.S.), associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1991, the second African American to serve on the court.

Appointed to replace Thurgood Marshall, the court’s first African American member, Thomas gave the court a decisive conservative cast.

Thomas’s father, M.C. Thomas, abandoned the family when Thomas was two years old. After the family house was destroyed by fire, Thomas’s mother, Leola Anderson Thomas, who worked as a maid, remarried.

Thomas, then age seven, and his brother were sent to live with their maternal grandparents.

He was educated in Savannah, Georgia, at an all-Black Roman Catholic primary school run by white nuns and then at a boarding-school seminary, where he graduated as the only African American in his class.
