1 Dollar American Innovation, Educator and civil rights activist Septima Poinsett Clark. (South Carolina). 2020 year.
The ninth American Innovative 1 Dollar coin in this series, representing South Carolina, Educator and civil rights activist Septima Poinsett Clark.
$ 1 dedicated to educator and civil rights activist Septime Poinsett Clark.
Born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1898, Septima Clark pioneered the link between education and political organization during the Civil Rights movement. Youth activists and civil rights organizations called her "the mother of conscience," and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the "mother of the movement."
Clarke believed that knowledge could empower marginalized groups in a way that formal legal equality could not do. She helped establish the first citizen schools, teaching literacy and civil rights, and helped shape local civil rights leaders. Teaching people to read and understand the Constitution helped black citizens pass the literacy tests used to disenfranchise black voters.
This initiative spread and was ultimately adopted by the Southern Christian Leaders' Conference, where Clarke became the tutor and worked closely with the leaders of the Civil Rights movement.
Obverse: In the center there is depicted, in profile, the Statue of Liberty, to the left of which is the official US motto "We believe in God" ("IN GOD WE TRUST"), to the right - the face value of the coin "$ 1" ("$ 1"). At the bottom of the obverse are the designers' initials "JK" and "PH".
Reverse: depicts educator and civil rights activist Septime Poinsette Clark, along with three African American students, carrying books and the US flag.
Edge: Smooth with an inscription (* In God We Trust * E Pluribus Unum * year of minting and mint stamp).
