Clarence Thomas is a Justice of the Supreme Court, one of America’s most important jobs—but he was once a kid just like you!
Building houses, planting a vegetable garden, driving his grandfather’s truck, and helping those in need…these are just a few things Clarence Thomas learned while growing up in Pin Point, Georgia. The things Clarence Thomas learned are what led him to become the 106th Supreme Court Justice to the Supreme Court.
