Born in the South in the early 20th century, John Henrik Clarke experienced racism first-hand. Determined not to be a victim, he left Alabama, headed North to Harlem, New York, a city which was more acceptable of African-Americans. Dr. Clarke is a prime example of a “self-made man.” He joined various groups from which he could and did benefit educationally and attended classes in between jobs. Realizing that only mental freedom in the form of a good education can get the blackman out of the inferior mold in which he was cast, Clarke became a determined scholar, one who was intent on proving that “blacks” had the potential to perform as well as other ethnic groups, given the opportunity.
“–There is a billion African people in the world. Why are we buying third rate junk from third rate people thinking that you can’t make it?
Dr. Clarke theorized that African-Americans can improve their economic status if they establish and support “black” businesses. Show your support of this theory by purchasing a sketch of Dr Clarke and display it in a prominent position in your home, office or business.
