University of Utah: Celebrating the launch of the France Davis Utah Black Archive

University of Utah: Celebrating the launch of the France Davis Utah Black Archive. “This man marched at Selma. He served as Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church for 45 years. He witnessed crosses being burned on the lawn of his church. He survived a life-changing, devastating burn on 30 percent of his body. And for decades he taught at the University of Utah, the institution that donned him with an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters in 1993. So it is only fitting that the J. Willard Marriott Library create a digital archive in the name of Reverend France Davis, retired pastor, father, husband, community leader, civil rights leader, educator.”
