About Ramsey Clark

Ramsey Clark: The Lawyer Who Fought for Peace

Ramsey Clark, born on December 18, 1927, in Dallas, Texas, was a man who dedicated his life to fighting for justice and peace. As the son of Supreme Court Justice Tom C. Clark, Ramsey was exposed to the legal system from a young age. He went on to study law at the University of Texas and later worked as a lawyer in private practice and for the Department of Justice.

However, it was his work as a peace activist that truly defined his legacy. Clark was a vocal opponent of the Vietnam War and worked tirelessly to end it. He also spoke out against the Iraq War and the use of torture by the U.S. government. He was a staunch advocate for civil rights and worked closely with Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights Movement.

Clark's activism often put him at odds with the government and he was not afraid to speak truth to power. He was even labeled a "traitor" by some for his opposition to U.S. foreign policy. But Clark remained steadfast in his beliefs and continued to fight for what he believed was right.

In addition to his activism, Clark also served as the Attorney General under President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1967 to 1969. He later founded the International Action Center, an organization dedicated to promoting peace and social justice around the world.

Ramsey Clark passed away on April 9, 2021, at the age of 94. His legacy as a lawyer and peace activist will continue to inspire generations to come.
