Cato Institute, 1000 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC

Register

Featuring a Q&A session with the filmmaker Michael Pack; moderated by Roger Pilon, B. Kenneth Simon Chair in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute.

Clarence Thomas has been a controversial member of the Supreme Court for nearly three decades. Yet most Americans know little more about him than what they read in headlines or recall from his contentious confirmation battle. To address that, Manifold Productions has produced a two-hour documentary on Thomas’s life, scheduled to be broadcast nationally on PBS in May 2020. Drawing on a rich array of historical archive material, period and original music, personal photos, and evocative recreations, Justice Thomas, unscripted, takes the viewer through his complex and often painful life, dealing with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience. Please join us for a special pre-broadcast screening of this film, followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker, producer-director Michael Pack. Moderated by Roger Pilon, B. Kenneth Simon Chair in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute.
