Condolences Goes Out To The Family Of Anthony Clark Formally Of Northampton County

Wow! Just received a message that my friend Anthony Clark had expired. I served as Vice Chair to Anthony in the North Carolina Rural Education Working Group for a couple of years.

I met Anthony Clark through Anthony Young when Senator Barack Obama announced his campaign run for President of these United States. Anthony was responsible for me, Andre Knight and Reuben Blackwell as he provided us with tickets to the campus of NC Central University when Obama came to NC to announce his intentions to become President. This was the 1st of around events that I videoed Barack Obama during his announcement and then after he filed to run. I will never forget that day at NC Central as we met Anthony to get into the event seems like yesterday.

Anthony was a smart man and loved people. He was a very busy man until his health began to fail him but even after his medical condition he tried to come back.

Anthony traveled with me to numerous meetings across the state whereby he shared much wisdom and knowledge with me.

See links below for some events that he and I was a part of:

How ironic Anthony is standing in front of a photo of President Barack Obama. I first met Anthony when he had tickets for me and some others to get on the football field at NC Central University during Obama’s first campaign stop in NC.
