It was just over two decades ago that Anita Hill was part of a hearing that rapidly became riveting drama -- the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings. For one day in 1991, Anita Hill, a law professor at the University of Oklahoma was grilled by U.S. Senators about her allegations.
She claimed Clarence Thomas -- a Supreme Court nominee -- had sexually harassed her when the two worked together at the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission.
Anita Hill is a professor of social policy, law and women's studies at Brandeis University. She was in Waltham, Massachusetts.
