DJ ‘Cousin Brucie’ Recalls Dick Clark’s Commitment To Racial Integration: ‘If We Don’t Go All Together, We Go Out’
DJ Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow visited Fox & Friends Thursday morning to reminisce about his recently departed friend, legendary host and producer Dick Clark. “Every mom and dad wanted this man to marry their daughter,” he said, referring to Clark’s wholesome, “boy next door” image.
Morrow emphasized Clark’s mission to show that music knows no color, no race:
Very early realizing that music was not a racial issue. He’s one of the first on a national level and he decided when he was on the road with his caravan, Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars, there were many times that he’d go into a town that was not enlightened yet to racial issues. And they’d say well, the black artists have to stay over there off the stage with the white artists. Dick Clark said this has happened many times, factually, that ‘If we don’t go all together, we go out. We will pull the show out.’ And he meant it. He put people back on the bus. It was amazing. He had this in his heart. He had a heart of rock ‘n’ roll.
