â€œHe 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,â€? notes Eady.
This Saturday August 25th, 6PM EST/5PM CST on “The Empowerment Hour,” radio program, Kermit Eady and Jason Byrd will be joined by Dr. King E. Davis.
“Many of you have heard me speak about this great African American,” Eady says. “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.”
Eady, President of Eady Associates, notes that the particular edition focused on The Black United movement, founded by the late Walter Bremond. 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,” notes Eady. Later, the Black United Fund of New York named a 41 unit housing development after Dr. Davis.
