A Taste of Power: A Black Woman's Story
We stand at the crossroads, pondering a direction for the future. Dr. Clarke has left us specific instructions on which road to take. Born a sharecropper's son, Dr. John Henrik Clarke became the associate of intellectual and political leaders like Malcolm X, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., W.E.B. Dubois, and Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah. As a gifted educator, his words inspire a deep love of the motherland, and transmute the shame and cruelty of slavery into a formidable force for the transformation of anyone with ears to hear. His teaching, lectures and writings have instilled - in countless students - pride, love of self, and devotion to an unerring standard of excellence.
