Clarence Thomas Biography & Profile Summary
Born on 23 June 1948, Clarence Thomas’s age is 75 Years Old as of 2023. He was born and raised in a middle-class devout Catholic Christian family in Pin Point, Georgia, United States. He is an American by nationality and believes in the Catholic religion.
Clarence completed his early school education at St. Pius X High School and later at St. John Vianney’s Minor Seminary, Isle of Hope. After the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., he says he quit seminary. “Good, I hope the son of a bitch dies,” he had overheard another student remark after the shooting, and he didn’t believe the church was doing enough to address racism.
After that, he enrolled himself at the Conception Seminary College Missouri. He enrolled at Worcester, Massachusetts’ College of the Holy Cross as a sophomore transfer student on the advice of a nun. He was instrumental in establishing the Black Student Union when he was a student there.
One time, when several black students were penalized for violating school rules, he walked out of class with other kids to protest the disparity. Black kids were let back into the school by a group of priests. He participated in anti-war protests while in college and saw the riots in Harvard Square in 1970 firsthand. His disenchantment with communist causes and shift to conservatism is attributed to this.
