    • “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” Powerful people cannot afford to educate the people that they oppress, because once you are truly educated, you will not ask for power. You will take it. Professor John Henrik Clarke Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds. Professor John Henrik Clarke My main point here is that if you are the child of God and God is a part of you, the in your imagination God suppose to look like you. And when you accept a picture of the deity assigned to you by another people, you become the spiritual prisoners of that other people. “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” From: RBG DR. JOHN HENRIK CLARKE STUDIES COLLECTION
    • “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience's attention, then he can teach his lesson. Professor John Henrik Clarke If I lead the field in any way, it is in the area of curricula development, study guides and other teaching materials. Professor John Henrik Clarke Nothing the European mind ever devised was meant to do anything but to facilitate the European's control over the world. Professor John Henrik Clarke The first light of human consciousness and the world's first civilizations were in Africa. Professor John Henrik Clarke The role of religions in the domination and destruction of African civilizations was ruthless... Islam was as guilty as all the rest. Professor John Henrik Clarke There was a time when all dark-skinned people were called Ethiopians, for the Greeks referred to Africa as, 'The Land of The Burnt-Face People.' Professor John Henrik Clarke To hold a people in oppression you have to convince them first that they are supposed to be oppressed. Professor John Henrik Clarke What I have learned is that a whole lot of people with degrees don't know a damn thing, and a lot of people with no degrees are brilliant. Professor John Henrik Clarke
    • “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” Africa and its people are the most written about and the least understood of all of the world's people. This condition started in the 15th and the 16th centuries with the beginning of the slave trade system. The Europeans not only colonialized most of the world, they began to colonialize information about the world and its people. Professor John Henrik Clarke Africans in the United States must remember that the slave ships brought no West Indians, no Caribbeans, no Jamaicans or Trinidadians or Barbadians to this hemisphere. The slave ships brought only African people and most of us took the semblance of nationality from the places where slave ships dropped us off. Professor John Henrik Clarke After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the United States would enter, in a formal way, what had been up to that date strictly a European conflict. Marcus Garvey's prophecy about the European scramble to maintain dominance over the whole world was now a reality. Professor John Henrik Clarke All the working-class people could feel a Malcolm X. They could hear Malcolm X, and two weeks later they could whisper back what he said. Verbatim. They could remember the way he put it, and he put it so well. Professor John Henrik Clarke Anytime someone says your God is ugly and you release your God and join their God, there is no hope for your freedom until you once more believe in your own concept of the 'deity.' Anytime you turn on your own concept of God, you are no longer a free man. No one needs to put chains on your body, because the chains are on your mind. Professor John Henrik Clarke
    • “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” As the eldest son of an Alabama sharecropper family, I was constantly troubled by a collage of North American southern behaviors and notions in reference to the inhumanity of people. There were questions that I did not know how to ask but could, in my young, unsophisticated way, articulate a series of answers. Professor John Henrik Clarke History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be. Professor John Henrik Clarke I saw no African people in the printed and illustrated Sunday school lessons. I began to suspect at this early age that someone had distorted the image of my people. My long search for the true history of African people the world over began. I understood that my family was rich in love but would probably never own the land my father, John, dreamed of owning. My mother, Willie Ella Mays Clarke, was a washerwoman for poor white folks in the area of Columbus, Georgia where the writer Carson McCullers once lived. Professor John Henrik Clarke In order to have a charismatic leader, you have to have a charismatic program. Because if you have a charismatic program, then if you can read you can lead. When the leader gets killed while you're reading from page 13 of your charismatic program, you can bury the man with honors, then continue the plan by reading from page 14. Let's keep on. Professor John Henrik Clarke
    • “RBG Communiversity Professor John Henrik Clarke Quotes” In the United States, the Supreme Court's decision of 1954, outlawing segregation in school systems, was greeted with mixed feelings of hope and skepticism by African-Americans. Professor John Henrik Clarke Malcolm X found the language that communicated across the board, from college professor to floor sweeper, all at the same time, without demeaning the intellect of either. Professor John Henrik Clarke My daddy wanted me to be a farmer; feel the smoothness of Alabama clay and become one of the first blacks in my town to own land. But, I was worried about my history being caked with that southern clay, and I subscribed to a different kind of teaching and learning in my bones and in my spirit. Professor John Henrik Clarke
