Energized by my fellow classmates who started RARE. Open discussions are a necessary foundation for promoting racial equity. Recognizing students who contribute toward creating a climate of racial equity is a fitting tribute to James Davis.

"I have come to the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the KKKer, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to 'justice'." Martin Luther King

We are glad for this opportunity to support the scholarship. Our society has not made nearly the progress on racial integration and racial equity that we would have predicted as high school students in the 1970's. It is high time that we make big changes. This program is an excellent start.

Joe Hunter '71
James A. Davis Jr. was a remarkable individual. He was my Business partner (as kids), Classmate, Fraternity Brother (Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc.), the Best Man at my wedding and my son's Godfather, but most importantly he was a fantastic person and my best friend. This scholarship will help to keep his memory and what he represented alive. We all need to support RARE and the James A. Davis Memorial Scholarship. #1) “These are all our children. We will profit by, or pay for, whatever they become.” #2) "When we open the door of opportunity... we give these students a chance to reach their true potential. We must rush to succeed!!!!! #3) "We stand on the shoulders of those who came before us... we must now anchor down and provide a firm foundation for the future generations to stand on"

"Each of us can learn from the equality trailblazers who have dedicated their work and lives to creating a path toward equality for all," -- Stevie Wonder. We salute the equality trailblazers of RARE.

Bruce Williams '71
James Davis was a teammate, a co-worker and a friend. But my relationship with him was also a sign of hope - that despite our country's terrible treatment of blacks in the past, in the future we could live together in a country "with liberty and justice for all." I am sad that we haven't made more progress but, with enough local efforts like this, we will get there.
