John Henrik Clarke Quotes

Renowned Historian, Scholar, Pan-Africanist, and Writer

"We have been educated into believing someone else's concept of the deity, and someone else's standard of beauty. You have the right to practice any religion and politics in a way that best suits your freedom, your dignity, and your understanding. And once you do that, you don't apologize."

"To control a people you must first control what they think about themselves and how they regard their history and culture. And when your conqueror makes you ashamed of your culture and your history, he needs no prison walls and no chains to hold you."

"To be black and beautiful means nothing in this world unless we are black and powerful."
