African American historian, John Henrik Clarke, was internationally renowned for his unique blend of activism and scholarship on Africa and Africans in America. As a leading proponent of an Afrocentric view of history and culture, Dr. Clarke was a central figure in the Harlem community. He was an advisor of Ghana’s independence fighter and first President, Kwame Nkrumah, and a close confidant of Malcolm X. His writings on the history, politics and culture of Black America include "The Boy that Painted Christ Black," a short story he wrote while in his early twenties, as well as over thirty books translated into more than a dozen languages.
