About the Author:

KENNETH B. CLARK began his education in the Harlem public schools and was later graduated from Howard University and received his Ph.D. from Columbia University. In 1962 he returned to Harlem as an "involved observer," serving as the chief consultant and chairman of the board of directors of the Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited project (Haryou), from which Dark Ghetto arose. But, according to Clark, "Dark Ghetto is a summation of my personal and lifelong experiences and observations as a prisoner within the ghetto long before I was aware that I was really a prisoner."
In 1938-1941 Clark was a research associate with Ralph Bunche and Gunnar Myrdal on the noted Carnegie study that led to An American Dilemma. He was president of the American Psychological Association in 1970-1971 and of the Society for Psychological Studies on Social Issues in 1959-60. He is now Distinguished Professor of Psychology Emeritus of the City University of New York. Clark is author of, among other books, Prejudice and Your Child, Pathos of Power, and King, Malcolm, Baldwin. He lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.
