Thomas was a historian and a scientist, an inventor and an author, a book collector, a composer, and a scholar,--who had mastered the art of teaching. The focus of the biography is not specifically centered on the scientific aspects of Dr. Thomass life, but also the political and social environments of the communities he encountered. Equally significant, he reached out to young people, both from prominent and poor families(including gang members) to teach them, the importance of obtaining a quality education. He spent an enormous amount of time with youths teaching them everything from basic rudiments of English and mathematics to complex mathematics, physics, philosophy, and religion. It was his way to seek out youngsters in the streets, get them interested in learning and then teaching them, if they were willing to apply themselves. He tutored all kinds of people in all kinds of places. Although, he never had a teaching certificate and never received any financial compensation in return. He didnt do it because he was after any gain of money or power. It was his natural way of living. He was indeed, a Silent Leader.
