Ted Cruz Wants Conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Added to the Smithsonian African American History and Culture Museum


Sen. Ted Cruz has urged leaders of the Smithsonian Institution to add Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to its museum of African-American History and Culture due to his “enormous legacy and impact.”

In a letter, the Texas Republican said the new museum has been rightly praised for its detailed, complex and powerful portrayal of the African-American experience in the United States, but it shouldn’t have omitted Clarence Thomas, the second African-American justice to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States, as well as the longest serving African-American justice.

The former Republican presidential candidate noted that “the tapestry of our nation’s history includes both the disgraceful epoch of slavery and the inspiring endeavors of legendary African-American leaders like Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and Martin Luther King, Jr.”

Cruz wrote he believes the museum has “made a mistake by omitting the enormous legacy and impact of Justice Thomas, as well as his compelling background.”
