Dr. Clement Price is passing the torch….the co-founder of New Jersey’s largest black history conference is stepping down after 33 years.

Price made the announcement to a packed house during Saturday’s event.

“I don’t bid you a fond farewell, I’ll probably end up sitting somewhere in the third or fourth row and watching this unfold and a committee of my colleagues my younger colleagues those who should enjoy what I’ve enjoyed coming before you year after year.”

Dr. Price co-founded the Marion T. Wright Lectures Series in 1981 with friend and colleague, the late Giles Wright. He says he hopes that the younger generation of scholars will continue his legacy of what has become one of the most distinguished black history conferences in the country.
