Kenneth Clark

We stopped by Kenneth Clark‘s funeral at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Harlem this morning.

The funeral, which was packed with civil rights types, was clearly a Big Deal in New York, and in black New York particularly, if not in the overtly political world. Still, pols from David Dinkins to Al Vann were there, as well as — and perhaps more importantly — much of the older civic elite. The eulogies came from a federal judge, academics, a former head of the ACLU.

Anyway, Mike was there, and we saw Virginia walk in as well.

The other candidates had other things to do.
