Petition Started to Include Clarence Thomas in National African American MuseumBreaking News

This month marks the 25th anniversary of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas being on the nation’s highest court. But the only reference that the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. has on Thomas is in reference to Anita Hill testifying against him for sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings.
To rectify this, the conservative-leaning StandUnited website recently launched a petition calling for Thomas to be included in the recently opened museum on the national mall. Entitled “Director for Smithsonian Museum of African-American Culture and History, Lonnie Bunch III : Don’t Overlook African American Leaders like Justice Clarence Thomas,” the petition was launched in early October and now has nearly 7,000 signatures.
