Must Read Profile of Clarence Henderson Who Will Speak Tonight at the RNC Night Three

Press Release:

    Raleigh NC     The High Point Enterprise wrote a profile of Clarence Henderson who will speak tonight at the Republican National Convention. Clarence Henderson participated in the famous Woolworth Sit-Ins and continues to advocate for the Black community.

    "We are proud to count Clarence Henderson as one of our own, and are honored to work alongside him to elect Republicans up and down the ballot," said NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley.

    Key Quotes from Clarence Henderson in this profile:

    "I support Donald Trump because he understands the free market capitalist system of America, and that's what drives America, Henderson, who is African-American, said by phone Tuesday afternoon. "He's certainly not a politician, but I believe he's the right person for America at this point in time."

    "I was involved in one of the movements that changed the course of history in America when Jim Crow was found guilty," said Henderson who was a student at N.C. A&T State University at the time. "That changed the way of things in America.

    "I compare the peaceful movement I participated in the movement that's going on now," he said. "There's really no comparison. We can peaceably protest the laws of our land — the Consitution allows us to do that — but when it goes from peaceful to violence and looting, that changes the whole dynamic. What made our protest work was that it was peaceful."
