The March 3 article "Elder Statesmen" by Yemi Toure is reporting par excellence. Reading about the lives and works of five black race-conscious and scholarship-oriented authors--John Henrik Clarke, John G. Jackson, Chancellor Williams, Yusef ben-Jochannan and John Hope Franklin--brought satisfaction to my heart. It is unfortunate that only a small segment of the black population and an even smaller number of white people are aware of contributions these elder statesmen have made toward reclaiming authentic black history.
