Dr. Clarence B. Jones Addresses SFS Community

In celebration of black history, Dr. Clarence B. Jones addressed the students, faculty and staff of The San Francisco School at the school’s Black History Celebration on Thursday, February 4. From 1960 to 1968, Dr. Jones was personal counsel, advisor, draft speech writer, and friend to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The San Francisco School prides itself on its multicultural curriculum and celebrations throughout the school year and marks each February with an annual black history event. This year, The School was honored to welcome Dr. Jones.

Following his work with Dr. King, Dr. Jones was the first African American partner at a Wall Street investment bank. He is currently a Scholar in Residence at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Institute at Stanford University and is the author of What Would Martin Say? and Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech that Transformed a Nation. Dr. Jones toured the school and engaged with students and faculty before addressing the community. Here are some memorable moments from his visit.
