“Peter Clark’s ministerial journey provides an in-depth understanding of the sacrifices and hardships faced by black Methodist preachers as they spread the gospel and expanded Methodism in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. It provides deep insight into the racial attitudes and economic conditions that prevailed in post-Reconstruction Louisiana.” - Angella Current-Felder, author, Breaking Barriers: An African American Family & the Methodist Story “I could feel the story better than most because I had been down some of the same roads Peter Clark traveled, although a hundred years later and under more comfortable circumstances.’’ - Rev. James L. Killen, Jr., author, Pastoral Care in the Small Membership Church “We sensed Peter Clark’s strength and leadership throughout this very turbulent and racially charged time in our history. He would have been honored to have his life written about with such loving care.” - Rev. Cindy Foster Serio, spiritual director and retreat leader, Mosaic Spiritual Formation Ministry “The information regarding tuberculosis is insightful. The biography walks the reader through some very important points and offers some food for thought on the thinking at the time and implications for the race, the individual and the family unit.” - Dr. Lisa Armitige, medical consultant, Heartland National TB Center
