This was a wonderful book written by an incredibly accomplished man. Supreme Court Justice Thomas was born in a poor community in Georgia. He was raised by uneducated grandparents in a bad part of Savanna. Through hard work and determination Mr. Thomas fought against the tide of racism. He graduated from Holy Cross before going to Yale to earn his law degree. He worked under President Reagan and was appoint to be a Judge on the Supreme Court of the United States of America by President H.W. Bush. My Grandfather’s Son is his autobiography. This is a wonderful, well written and encouraging story that I strongly encourage all to read.
