Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words Trailer

"If you take anger out of my heart… I'll never hate again." Blue Fox Ent. has released a new official trailer for the documentary Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, about the Supreme Court justice and his entire career in law and politics. Although Clarence Thomas remains a controversial figure, loved by some, reviled by others, few know much more than the news headlines as well as the recollections of his contentious confirmation battle with Anita Hill in 1991. Yet, the personal odyssey of Clarence Thomas is a classic American story and it should be better known and understood. This doc film tells the Clarence Thomas story truly and fully: "unscripted and without narration, the documentary takes the viewer through this complex and often painful life, dealing with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience." Sounds like a compelling watch! Even if you don't care for him much. Take a look at the new trailer below.

Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words Poster

With unprecedented access, the producers interviewed Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, Virginia, for over 30 hours of interview time, over many months. Justice Thomas tells his entire life’s story, looking directly at the camera, speaking frankly to the audience. After a brief intro, the documentary proceeds chronologically, combining Justice Thomas’ first person account with a rich array of historical archive material, period and original music, personal photos, and evocative recreations. Unscripted and without narration, the documentary takes the viewer through this complex and often painful life, dealing with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience. Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words is directed by doc filmmaker Michael Pack, director of the documentaries Campus Culture Wars, The Rodney King Incident: Race and Justice in America, The Fall of Newt Gingrich, God and the Inner City, and Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton. Blue Fox will release the doc in select US theaters starting on January 31st, 2020 at the end of this month. For more details, visit the film's official website. Interested?

Reviled by others...that the corner I'm in. I have zero interest in watching this film which he was involved in the production and which was made to make him look like other than what he is. What a load of pretense. He's a creepy guy and I'll never forget the Anita Hill stuff.

I had the opportunity to listen on NPR the live Anita Hill Hearings. The disconnect between what occurred at the hearings and how the news reported it was startling.

Not sure what point you are making here. I watched a lot of it live and didn't or wasn't exposed to the news reporting it. I'm a little tired of the media Trumpesque bashing going on today, so if your post is part of that...well...

Thanks for replying. I think that having these conversations keeps our freedoms from being encroached. I value the quality of first hand information over having newscasters rehash it. I am not sure why I had assumed you were a younger person and that perhaps you were not exposed to the live Anita Hill testimony against Thomas.

No harm, no foul. Actually, I'm an old dog of 74 and worked in films for over 40 yrs. I'm retired and enjoy coming on this and other film websites and reading about what films are around and exchanging opinions about them. It can get rough at times...lol...but I don't take any opinions very seriously...not even my own. Cheers!

I watched it on TV live & felt she contradicted herself & saw "harassment" differently than I did. I certainly did not totally dismiss the possibility that she was embellishing or fabricating her accounts.

Wow...and you're a woman too. It boggles my mind and I can only come to the conclusion that for some reason you suffer from distorted perceptions. It's no wonder women are still treated like second class citizens and not believed when even other women side with the patriarchy society and culture that we still live in today. I would like to say I respect your opinion, but I just cannot as I disagree so adamantly with your perspective and have a heavy heart just reading it. You believed him? Thomas? That she was fabricating? Again...wow!

When only a person is highlighted, you can be sure that you won't find out and understand everything important. I don't know him, but there's much more to it then just knowing the person. That's why I don't like stories like this ... ..
