Podcasts by Daniel G. Clark, hosted by LibSyn.com. Most shows were editions of "Trolleys, Tales & Talk" aired weekly on KWPC radio from January 2006 until May 2010.
Dan Clark and Shirley Calvert discuss various happenings as Muscatine's "colored orator of the West" is remembered during Black History Month. We hear the voice of Shirley's father, William D. Randall, recorded in 1949 reading his story, "Jimmy White Finds Freedom: Slavery and Alexander Clark." Clark's 183rd birthday is Feb. 25 (born 1826). He died in 1891 in Monrovia, Liberia, while serving as U.S. ambassador, and his body was returned to Muscatine. Learn more at http://alexanderclark.org.
