PROFESSOR JOHN HENRIK CLARKE
MASTER TEACHER OF ALL TIME
~LECTURE DOCUMENTARY SERIES~


LOS ANGELES, CA---Dr. John Henrik Clarke one of the world's authorities on
African and world history is the featured academician & scholar on RA
productions and Universal Media Exchanges recently released video
documentary
project. The entitled, "Professor John Henrik Clarke: Master Teacher of All
Time" is a five (5) part lecture series dedicated to the memory and
outstanding legacy of John Henrik Clarke, Ph.D., author, former Professor
Emeritus Hunter College, NYC.

Though Professor Clarke is extensively honored and deeply respected within
the African and African American communities, as a Master Teacher and "Word
Warrior" (Professor Kwaku Person-Lynn) peculiarly, he is widely underexposed
in other communities throughout the world, particularly in America.
Universal
Media Exchange, a Public Relations management firm, is spearheading the
process of identifying potential broadcasters and establishing international
media contacts, for what promises to be one of the most profound
lecture/interview series, of our lifetime.

The "Master Teacher" series stands amongst other successful documentations
of
Dr. Clarke's work produced in past years, by such notables as Wesley Snipes
1997, "John Henrik Clarke: A Great and Mighty Walk;" Euzhan Palcy's 1994,
"Aimé Cesaire: Voix Pur L'Histoire; Part II, Au Rendezvous De La Conquete;"
Danny Glover's, "The Boy Who Painted Christ Black," written by Dr. Clarke
and
received the NAACP Image Award. Cornell, Columbia, Hunter College are
amongst
the Universities who have published works by the esteemed Professor Clarke.

The "Master Teacher" series is a documentation of several lecture tours
taken, by Professor Clarke to the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1980s
and early 1990s. During those years, Dr. Clarke was hosted & sponsored by
the
late great newspaper publisher and Gubernatorial candidate Dr. Carlton
Goodlet, The Family Resource House of Unity, ICFGP, KHAFRE Cultural
Community
Center, Peralta Colleges, Laney College, PCTV, KDIA radio, Berkeley High
School, UC Berkeley. The RA Productions crew was present at every event, to
capture the messages delivered. At all occasions, Professor Clarke addressed
the serious social and political concerns of the community, at that time.
Remarkably, the profundity and relevance of Professor Clarke's messages are
as current today, as they were at the time presented.

ADDENDUM
PROGRAM SYNOPSIS


Part I -- Media; The Colonization of the Mind
Just as the segment title indicates, we now have the opportunity to revisit
Professor Clarke in rare form, as he explores the residual effects of media
on the minds of its recipients. Throughout this 25 minute lecture
documentation, Professor Clarke discusses very practical examples, methods
and resolutions to the impact negative media and debilitating images have on
our self-esteem and self-worth.  (total running time--TRT 25:40)

Part II -- The African Image: A Public Relations Challenge
The overall image of Africa and its people is in a state of crisis.
Professor
Clarke deals with this challenge head-on!  As scrutinized by Professor
Clarke, African people have allowed too many other people to analyze and
determine their historic truths, which are not esthetically flattering, nor
factually accurate. "African people must tell more stories that make them
feel good about themselves" is only one of the prescriptive measures Dr.
Clarke recommends. "I definitely believe this to be the antidote to many our
of social ills," confirms public relations specialist Professor, C. Sade
Turnipseed, who is Co-Executive Producer of the series and teaches in the
Pan-African Studies department at California State University, Northridge.
"I
will go further to offer this as a challenge to all writers and producers,
particularly those in Hollywood and New York (Professor Clarke's hometown)
to
step forward and do just what the good doctor has prescribed," urges
Turnipseed. (TRT 31:40)

Part III -- Historical Perspectives: Interview by, Professor Wade Nobles,
Ph.D.
Dr. Wade Nobles is a tenured professor of African studies at San Francisco
State University. During Professor Clarke's 1989 interview, they discuss the
African contributions to world history and the American culture. This is
only
one of the many interviews captured on tape, which proves to all audiences
that Professor Clarke is indeed a world treasure. (TRT 29:00)


Part IV -- Intimate Moments: Interview by, Durethia DuVal, Ph.D.
In a rare and wonderful moment of self-refection, Professor Clarke exposes
to
Dr. Durethia DuVal, very personal thoughts about his family, the importance
of cultural and academic education of our children, the responsibilities of
parenting, the three most influential women in his lifetime, and perhaps the
most instructive lesson--insight into his life's mission. (TRT 28:00)


Part V -- The African Antecedence to the Teachings of Martin Luther King,
Jr.
Much of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's teachings were attributed to Ghandi,
Thoreau, and many others who had no direct connection to his own cultural
experience...which leads to the question..."What about the Africans?"
Professor Clarke delves into the ancient Kemetic system analyzing the
"peaceful" legacy of Imhotep and other prominent African leaders of their
day; bringing his message full circle to contemporary African systems of
"peace," as witnessed with President Nelson Mandela and others, to be
definite traits of an African cultural predisposition. (TRT 1:31:10)

Taking the next natural step, in the investigation of the African psyche of
forgiveness, any researcher has countless examples, to which one may point:
  Congressman John Lewis & Congressman J. C. Watts, regarding the Trenton
Lott debacle.
  Ward Connelly & Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, regarding the
dissolution of Affirmation Action for disadvantaged people.
  Countless religious leaders, professors, media spokesmen, talk show hosts,
and "so-called" community leaders...have all acquiesced and forgave the
powers-that-be for underdeveloping and undermining the African (Black) and
the impoverished communities in America.
