Tom Bowen talk about Rachel Davis Dubois January 24, 2021
Rachel Davis Dubois at Woodland Meeting
Who Was Rachel Davis Dubois? Born to a South Jersey (Woodstown) Quaker farm family in 1892, Rachel Dubois became a local high school teacher whose deep belief in pacifism led her to become an equally ardent foe of racial discrimination and ethnic conflict of all kinds. Educating herself as to the extent of these problems in America, she developed a unique method of healing these ills called the “group conversation method”. Her teaching and leadership skills had national and international impact throughout her long and productive life. Before her death at 101 in 1993, she had worked with and earned the esteem of visionaries like W. E. B. Du Bois, Bayard Rustin, Martin Luther King, Jr. and a host of others, as founder and leader of the renowned Intercultural Education Movement.
