Dr. King E. Davis (Black Fundraising in America)

Many of you have heard me speak about this great African American. We met at Norfolk State University  in 1977 when I joined the faculty as the Director of Admissions and Recruitment in the Graduate School of Social Work. Here Dr. Davis introduced me to the Black United Fund concept. In addition to being faculty, at that time, he was a guest editor in an edition of one of  our great Black publications, The Black Scholar Magazine. This edition focused on The Black United movement, founded by the late Walter Bremond.  More importantly however, Dr Davis did his doctoral dissertation at Brandeis University on the history of Black Fundraising in America. He is the foremost scholar in this area as this is the only authentic work that has ever been done on Black fundraising. It later became a book. "Fund raising in the Black Community." Also the Black United Fund of New York named a 41 unit housing development, The King Davis Houses.
