Even though racial equality seeming to a bleak dream, Clark kept raising funds for the movement and kept praying. Jazz, as Clark describes, was the common denominator at the gigs. Music helped communicate with people who did not speak the same language. In the spring of 1972, the Tonight Show was getting ready to move to the West Coast. Clark was invited to join, but, wanting to stay in New York, he turned down the offer. That April, he was honored at the fifth annual Quinnipiac Intercollegiate Jazz Festival in Connecticut. Staying in New York, he was enjoying his big band dates and other performances, and his passion for jazz education was growing at a fast pace. His newest dream was to organize a youth band and take them overseas so they could experience jazz on the other side of the world.
