Join the LWV St. Paul Morning Book Club for discussion about The Enigma of Clarence Thomas by Corey Robin. All are invited even if you haven't read the book. Please e-mail Mary (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the Zoom link.
Description: Delves into Thomas's biography and his jurisprudence, reading his Supreme Court opinions against the backdrop of his autobiographical and political writings and speeches. The hidden source of Thomas's conservative views, Robin shows, is a profound skepticism that racism can be overcome. Thomas is convinced that any government action on behalf of African-Americans will be tainted by racism; the most African-Americans can hope for is that white people will get out of their way.
