“Paul Robeson’s Place in History” with Professor Bill Davis.
The program will be Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 1 to 4 pm at the Clinton Elementary School
Cafetorium, 1302 W. 4th St. Plainfield, NJ 07060.
Bill Davis was born in Newark and raised in Plainfield, NJ, where he attended public school. Bill then attended Rutgers University and earned a BA in Africana Studies and a Masters in Education. He became a Rutgers staff member shortly after graduation working in
the Rutgers Camden admission office.
During his career in higher education, Bill has worked in various positions at NYU, Middlesex County College, and the former University of Medicine and Dentistry.
One of his favorite appointments has been adjunct professor in the Africana Studies Department for the past ten years.
During this session, Professor Davis will explore the impact of the life of the dynamic Paul Robeson (the tallest tree in our forest), who graduated from Rutgers 100 years ago in 1919.
The Westry Horne Cultural and Heritage Series is partially funded by a grant from the Plainfield Cultural and Heritage Commission.
