The F. D. Reese Foundation aims to honor Dr. Frederick Douglas Reese’s legacy through practical education methods to make a global impact on humanity. The foundation strives to address the disenfranchisement of students in some of the nation’s underserved and impoverished communities to build universal leaders.
The spirit of F. D. Reese will engender a level of respectability, self-pride, and morality within the lives of all who are impacted by the foundation’s work. Ultimately, the foundation seeks to raise awareness of critical issues facing the community through culturally relevant education services and scholarship opportunities.
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., and his wife, Coretta King, lead off the final day for the Selma to Montgomery march on March 25, 1965. Thousands of civil rights marchers joined in the walk, which began in Selma on March 21, demanding voter registration rights for blacks. The Rev. F.D. Reese, of Selma, is at right.
