“Why do you think that black people are starting to like hockey? And I keep it simple with them—Representation. If we look at the NHL, over the past five to 10 years, the amount of black players [has] increased substantially.” — Kenneth “Tiberius” Clark
“I want you to know that it's okay to take up space in this predominantly white sport. Because like I say, we look into the catacombs of hockey. We are a part of its history. And based on how things are going and the direction we're headed, we're a part of its bright future as well.” — Kenneth “Tiberius” Clark
