Early Life and Education
Early on in her life, Thomas considered becoming an architect; however, at a time when few women architects existed she decided to study art instead and become a painter instead. She attended Howard University and graduated in 1924 before beginning a 35-year teaching art at a D.C. junior high school which enabled her to support herself financially while continuing painting at nighttime.
Thomas initially explored realistic work, but eventually began exploring abstraction as she was inspired by Howard professor James V. Herring and fellow artist Lois Mailou Jones to forge her own style.

As a player, Thomas built an excellent reputation for his hard work ethic and leadership abilities. That same drive is now applied in his business ventures: Thomas has established companies specializing in waste removal/recycling/multi-family housing/sports among many other fields of endeavor.
After retiring from basketball, he took on front office roles with several teams including Toronto Raptors expansion team as General Manager; New York Knicks as President/General Manager/Head Coach; Indiana Pacers (part owner); Florida International University as part Owner.
Thomas remains dedicated to strengthening communities through his philanthropy efforts. He founded Mary’s Court, providing health and safety support for disadvantaged women and children; along with Father Michael Pfleger he created the Windy City Hoops Tournament as a means to reduce gang violence among Chicago youth by uniting them through basketball.
