When African American historian, writer and critic John Henrik Clarke died in July of last year, his passing embodied the popular saying that when a wise man dies, a library burns down. Fortunately, Clarke left behind volumes of his teachings on thousands of years of African and world history, a legacy that will remain long past his death.

As we prepare to enter a new millennium, Dr. Clarke takes the listeners on a walk through five previous millenniums in this excerpt from the documentary “A Great and Mighty Walk.” The documentary was directed by St. Claire Borne and produced and narrated by actor Wesley Snipes.

Tape:

  • Excerpt From The Documentary “A Great And Mighty Walk,” on the life and teachings of the late John Henrik Clarke, outstanding African American historian, educator, critic and poet. He wrote ??Notes for an African World Revolution: Africans at the Crossroads, ??Malcolm X: The Man and His Times, ??Rebellion and Rhyme and ??New Dimensions in African History.
