Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words »

Although Clarence Thomas remains a controversial figure, loved by some, reviled by others, few know much more than a few headlines and the recollections of his contentious confirmation battle with Anita Hill. Yet, the personal odyssey of Clarence Thomas is a classic American story and should be better known and understood. His life began in extreme poverty in the segregated South, and moved to the height of the legal profession, as one of the most influential justices on the Supreme Court.

RICKOVER: The Birth of Nuclear Power »

Admiral Hyman G. Rickover was a flamboyant maverick, a unique American hero. When few thought it possible, then-Captain Rickover harnessed the power of the atom to drive the first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, whose trip under the polar ice pack was one of the great adventure stories of the 1950s. Later, Rickover built the world's first nuclear aircraft carrier and the first commercial nuclear power plant. Today, when questions about nuclear power have arisen again in the wake of the disaster in Japan, we would do well to consider the story of the man who started it all: Hyman G. Rickover.

Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton »

Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton is the second in our "Rediscovering" series. Richard Brookhiser returns as host. Beginning life as an illegitimate immigrant from the West Indies, Hamilton was a self-made man. As the first Treasury Secretary, Hamilton's service to the nation went far beyond setting up a branch of government. Then his life ended in the most famous duel in American history. We live in the still unfolding two-century-long boom that he began.
