Chief Cook & Bottle-Washer the Unconquerable Soul of Wilkie Clark
He might have been black; he might have come from a place of proverty and ignorance; But he was just TOO LEGIT to quit!! "Chief Cook & Bottle-Washer," The Unconquerable Soul Of Wilkie Clark is a poignant, powerful biography that PROCLAIMS the historical distinction of Wilkie Clark, a black man who rose to the occasion of racism and economic oppression in the south. It HONORS black fathers; ILLUMINATES the dignified, distinguished role and legacy of the black funeral director in America; and finally it CHALLENGES a contemporary black community to take its economic destiny into its own hands and "come up" by its own design... This book takes a broad but serious look at black economics in the south and suggests a way to improve our status in the context of commuities that offer us little or no support.... Lovingly penned by his only daughter, it is the culmination of her year-long effort to establish his historical significance in his local community.
