From the Paper:

"Clarence Thomas was born in a small town outside of Savannah, Georgia, in 1948 (Brock, 1993, 62). When his father left the family, Thomas was still a young child, and his mother had to support Thomas, his older sister, and younger brother. At the age of 8, Thomas went to live with his mother's parents and helped his grandfather work on a truck. Thomas then attended a segregated Catholic school (Brock, 1993, 62). Later, during one of Thomas's speeches, he commented about this education, saying, "I grew up under state enforced segregation, which is as close to totalitarianism as I would like to get (Ibid., 63)." He also said that the household he grew up in was "more conservative than many who fashion themselves as conservative today (Ibid.)."

By the 11th grade, Thomas was attending the St. John Vianney Minor Seminary and was the only black student in his class."
