Clarence Williams III, best known for portraying Linc on TV’s The Mod Squad, has died at the age of 81, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Created by Bud Ruskin, the crime drama followed young adults (played by Williams, Peggy Lipton and Michael Cole) who had run-ins with the law, but later became police officers under the tutelage of Capt. Adam Greer (played by Tige Andrews). The show highlighted the era’s counterculture, often incorporating timely issues like anti-war protests, drug addiction and racism, as the squad visited schools, prisons and gangs throughout their quests to catch bad guys. Linc “was a very different role for an African-American and a wonderful lead character that a lot of youngsters, Black and white, and principally African-American youngsters, could identify with,” Williams told the Los Angeles Times in a 1995 interview. Despite walking away from the role to pursue other opportunities, Williams did play the character once more in the 1979 TV-movie The Return of Mod Squad. Afterward, he guest-starred on other TV series including Hill Street Blues, T.J. Hooker, The Cosby Show, Miami Vice, Twin Peaks, Walker Texas Ranger, Burn Notice, Empire, Justified and more. As for his film career, some of his most notable credits include Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Reindeer Games, The General’s Daughter, Half Baked and Tales From the Hood.Clarence Williams III, Played Linc on The Mod Squad, Dead at 81

Research to date has yielded that the bodies of Mary of Magdalene, Martha, and Lazarus tombs have been discovered with their names, and a study has shown through DNA, and bone examination, that the people of the village of Magdella, where they lived were in fact Negroes.
It doesn’t stop there, Acts Chapter 13:1 reads, “Now there was in the church that was in Antioch certain prophets and teachers: as Barnabas and Simon that was called Niger…” The Greek word being used in this quote means Black-skinned. ‘Niger’ is from ancient Roman, which became Latin ‘Nagra’ used to this present day for Negroes as well as Moranos (Moors), meaning a Black person.
