St. Clair Drake

Drake, St Clair (John Gibbs) (1911–1990)

US sociologist and cultural anthropologist. With Horace Cayton, he co-authored Black Metropolis (1946), a landmark study of Chicago's south side ghetto. He went into academia, advised leaders of newly independent African nations, and helped develop training programmes for Africa-bound Peace Corps volunteers.
He was born in Suffolk, Virginia, the son of a West Indian immigrant who became a Baptist preacher, and graduated from Hampton Institute. As a young man, he participated in Quaker peace and racial justice campaigns, before going on to teach at Dillard, Roosevelt, and Stanford Universities.
