More than just an author and researcher, in the 1960s, Dr. John Henrick Clarke served as director of the African Heritage Program of the Harlem anti-poverty agency known as HARYOU-ACT, and as special consultant and coordinator for the Columbia University-WCBS-TV series Black Heritage (1968). He was the first president of the African Heritage Studies Association, and was a founding member of the Black Academy of Arts and Letters and the African American Scholars’ Council.
Dr. Clarke’s life – like the lives of most of the men and women that we have featured here – became a symbol of the qualities we wish to claim, to emulate, and to engender: commitment, self-reliance, communalism, intelligence, scholarly excellence, determination, discipline, conviction and achievement. He was, is, and always will be our Pan-African scholar warrior!
