On October 11th, 1991, Oklahoma law professor Anita Hill calmly told the Senate Judiciary Committee that her former boss, Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, had sexually harassed her years earlier. Thirty years later, we’re still talking about that fateful weekend—and understanding its impact. In our opening episode, hosts Dr. Salamishah Tillet and Cindi Leive walk you through the anger, the intrigue and the surprises, with fresh perspective from lawyer Kimberlé Crenshaw, who served on Hill’s legal team; journalist Jane Mayer, who helped expose the hearings’ flaws; and actor Kerry Washington, who later immersed herself in the hearings for a role as Anita Hill.
