Justice Thomas recently visited Harvard Law School as part of a lecture series. The law school's report on his visit includes this lead paragraph:
Justice Clarence Thomas has become known as a quiet presence on the Supreme Court. But on Jan. 29, members of the Harvard Law School community got to hear him speak—and he did so with great humor and warmth.
The report, along with an hour-long video of his remarks, is here. The Harvard students gave him a standing ovation as he arrived in the room. Professor Ann Althouse has some interesting additional observations, which are here.
