Kerry Washington to star in HBO's "Confirmation"

After Clarence Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court, a series of confirmation hearings took place in Washington. Those hearings took a sharp turn when a University of Oklahoma law professor by the name of Anita Hill came forward with accusations that Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her when she worked for him. Anita Hill claimed that the Supreme Court nominee began harassing her after she declined his invitations of a date. The media quickly jumped on the story and turned the allegations into a media frenzy that Thomas called the hearings, “a high-tech lynching for uppity Blacks.” The accusations were a he said / she said ordeal but at the end, Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court.
