Rudy G. Wilson: The American who was a true African

Rudy G. Wilson (June 17, 1935 – December 4, 2017)

My great benefactor, Rudy Wilson just passed on in the US. He was 82 years old.

Great man. Large heart. Patron. Educationist. Spirit of Africa-America Renaissance. Lover of all things literary and cultural. First elected African American President of the School Board in Edwardsville, Illinois. First African American to teach in an all-white school in Claremont. Silent but effective revolutionary.
