Ahati N.N. Toure

In the late 1960s through to the late 1980s, the late John Henrik Clarke was one of the foremost architects of the emerging discipline of Africana Studies and Africalogy as Professor of African World History in the Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College of the City University of New York and as the Carter G. Woodson Distinguished Visiting Professor of African History at Cornell Universitys Africana Studies and Research Centre. This study explores Clarke as an exemplar of indigenous intellectualism in Afrikan culture in the US.
