Ready To Serve...

My name is Charlotte Clark-Frieson and I’m running for the Alabama State House of Representatives.

I grew up in Roanoke, Alabama during the desegregation era and saw the power of my parents’ civil rights activism to create positive change.

When I was 14 my father started a family business in Roanoke, which became the center of our lives. I continue to run the Clark Funeral Home today with my adult children. My late husband, Clarence, was a Tuscaloosa native and a US Navy veteran.

I followed in my both my parents’ footsteps, heading our Randolph County NAACP chapter, which my father, Wilkie Clark, led for more than 40 years. I was a teacher for 21 years, like my mother, a lifelong educator. I’m proud to have stood against bigotry as a Randolph County School Board member, rallying our community to remove a racist principal.

Raised in Roanoke, I graduated from Handley High School. At Auburn University I earned Bachelors of Science and Masters of Education degrees, and attended post graduate studies at the State University of West Georgia. I was a founding member of the first black sorority at Auburn University, the Kappa Upsilon chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta National Service Society. I’ve been a life-long member of the Bethel United Methodist Church in Roanoke, and am currently sharing my love of music as Music Director for Saint Paul Baptist Church in Roanoke.

I received the NAACP’s Medgar Evers Award and the Alabama Democratic Conference’s John F. Kennedy Profiles in Courage Award in recognition of my grassroots civil rights work while on the Randolph County School Board.
