Sukari Hardnett was one of the witnesses who was never called to testify at Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991. She submitted a sworn affidavit to the Committee, describing the sexual harassment she witnessed while working with Thomas at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But Hardnett was never contacted by the Committee or its Chair, then-Senator Joe Biden. Hardnett and Hill speak for the first time about Hardnett’s experience of being excluded from this historic hearing and how that impacted her life and the country.
