Clarence Thomas has held a seat on the United States Supreme Court for just a day over 25 years. From one perspective, it could be said that he was the most powerful black man in U.S. politics pre-Obama. From another, he has a long history of conservative politics and has been accused of sexual harassment. But should his legacy be officially acknowledged as a part of African American history?
That same question is bing raised after a petition was launched on StandUnited to have Thomas included in the recently opened National African American Museum on the National Mall.
