Clarence Henderson, a 1960s civil rights icon, endorses Trump for the second time
History and reality matter to a 1960 African-American civil rights activist who calls upon America to vote for Donald Trump.
Civil rights activist Clarence Henderson on Wednesday endorsed President Trump's reelection bid, saying he's done more for African-Americans in four years than Democratic challenger Joe Biden has done in 50 years.
Henderson – who participated in the 1960 Greensboro, North Carolina, sit-in – also endorsed Trump's 2016 White House bid.
"He has done more for black Americans in four years than Joe Biden has done in 50," Henderson said at the Republican National Convention. “There are African-American voters all over the country who the media is trying to convince to conform to the same old Democratic talking points. You know what that’ll get you? The same old results."
The Greensboro sit-in helped turned the tide of history in civil rights movement. Students sat at a Woolworth's lunch counter and were denied service based upon the color of their skin as segregation was in full force.
