The John Henrik Clarke
Virtual Museum

SBA: Study

He did not just teach history. He made it.

An achiever is never satisfied with just being good. He strives for excellence. John Henrik Clarke is a shining example of an achiever.

Professor Clarke was a faculty member and former chairman of the department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College.

He was a former Distinguished Visiting Professor of African History at the African Studies and Research Center at Cornell University...

...the author or editor of nineteen books including Lives of Great African Chiefs...

...a former director of the Heritage Teaching Program...

...a founding member of the Black Academy of Arts and Sciences and recognized internationally as an authority on African and Afro-American history and culture...

...the recipient of the Carter G. Woodson Award and a Distinguished Service Award from the Black Studies Union of William Patterson College...

...historical advisor for Budweiser's "Great Kings of Africa" Black awareness campaign.

He was an educator. A Historian. And a community activist.

He was a perfect role model for Black Youth.

And he sure is to go down in the history he has researched and taught so well.

Dr. Clarke, Here's to you!
