Clarence Davis and Barbara Harvey-Davis founded the William Kellibrew Foundation in 2007, named in honour of William Kellibrew and the significant work Kellibrew embarked upon on the campus of the University of the District of Columbia. They both started the Foundation to provide support to individuals who had barriers to pursuing the educational pursuits. Their work on the board facilitated a movement and today, the Foundation has been honoured for its work around violence, trauma, education and leadership. From the White House to the dark rooms and streets where victimization happens, the Foundation continues to live out the founder's intended mission to serve others.
The WKF family is deeply saddened by the loss of such a hero and giant in the movement of freedom, justice, and equality.
We will miss you Clarence.
