WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HORACIOLEWIS.COM FAIRNESS INSTITUTE: "Dr. Lewis was flexible and tolerant, encouraging others to express themselves fully. Participants often said that he helped them to understand and appreciate views they had never considered before. He accomplished this with sound evidence and skillful questions that involved the audience and truly expanded their perceptions and ideas." Truth H. Schiffhauer, Project Director of "Let's Talk About it." (DE) _______________________________ "Thank you for coming to lead the discussion for 'Dust Tracks on a Road' by Zora Neale Hurston...some of the experiences you have had in living in a white-dominated society helped us to realize the difficulties people of color have to overcome." Rhoda Trexler (DE) _______________________________ "Thank you so much for accepting our invitation as outside Evaluator for the Filipino Heritage and Arts Museum, Filipino American Youth Conference; SANTACRUZAN."

William B. DeLauder, President, Delaware State University (DE) _________________________________ "I enjoyed reading your letter addressed to President Clinton. I agree with you, in regard to racism in society we must leave our biases and preconceived ideas at the door before any discussion on this issue can begin. Americans have come from all corners of the globe, bringing diverse cultures, knowledge and beliefs with them. These multicultural values and traditions have shaped our nation. Yet, racism still prevents millions of Americans from being judged on 'the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.' We are working hard in this Administration to encourage government and the private sector to work as a team to eradicate racism in our society. Thank you for your support." Henry Cisneros, Secretary, Department of Housing and Urban Development (Washington, D.C.) ________________________________ "...[Dr. Lewis] has demonstrated an exceptional depth of content knowledge, as well as the outstanding ability to interact with an reach students.

Bahr, Community Relations and Marketing Director (DE) _______________________________ "...Your willingness to serve in the capacity of 'outside Evaluator' for this project [2nd annual Malcolm X Birthday Celebration] not only helped us to meet the requirements of the Delaware Humanities Forum but it extended our family of well-informed supporters...

Boswell, Administrative Assistant, City of Wilmington (DE) _______________________________ "It has always been a pleasure to work on committees with Horacio Lewis.

But more than concern, he takes action by bringing direct attention to issues and serving as an advocate for those unable to speak for themselves." Maria D. Perez, M.D. (DE) _______________________________ "I was on the one hand disappointed, yet happy for you to learn about your new position at Brown University. In my estimation Delaware has lost an insightful and accomplished teacher and a passionate advocate for human rights, and Brown is indeed fortunate to have [the] benefit of your thinking and doing." David H. Burdash, Director of The Wilmington Library (DE) _______________________________ "Dr. Lewis has earned my respect on many levels, but perhaps the most striking of his strengths--at least to me--is the way he applies the best of both the scholarly and the pragmatic approaches to policy-making. He is consistently well-informed, current in his research and eloquent in his expression of ideas, and just as consistently, he is committed to finding solutions that work--'real world'--solutions that allow room for complexity and compromise. He has broken down barriers between groups of our citizens not by the volume of his voice but by the power of his argument and of his example. He has opened doors of opportunity and understanding, touching countless individual lives and strengthening our shared sense of community." Senator Joseph R. Biden, Jr., United States Senate (Washington, DC) _______________________________ "When I thought of professional poets, Langston Hughes and Gwendolyn Brooks always came to mind first.

Charlesa Lowell, Project Manager, Newark Free Library (DE) _______________________________ "Thank you very much for your letter expressing your support for adequate funding for Title IV of the Civil Rights Act. I will continue to support...this program as the Congress makes crucial budgetary decisions." Chairman Carl D. Perkins, Congress of The United States (Washington, DC) _______________________________ "Helped us do some self-examination as we considered issues of race." Newark United Church of Christ (DE) _______________________________ "I would like to congratulate you on being nominated for the 25th Annual Jefferson Awards. This is an honor that you richly deserve. However, more than simply congratulating you, I would like to thank you for your tireless dedication and devotion to the community. You have raised the state’s consciousness about the importance of civil rights, Hispanic affairs, the NAACP and children and have demonstrated firsthand the significance of diversity. It is my sincere hope that your efforts will inspire others to follow your example. Once again congratulations and best wishes." Michael N. Castle, Member of Congress __________________________________ "I am writing to acknowledge and thank your for your gift of [five groups] of primary source material pertaining to issues of Latinos in Delaware and elsewhere (which were compiled when you were Chairman of the Delaware Governor’s Council on Hispanic Affairs, Co-Founder of the Delaware Latino task Force, and Dean of the Indiana University Office of Latino Affairs), the history of the Panama Canal and desegregation of Delaware schools. As I mentioned during your visit, these sorts of printed reports are important primary documents and often represent a unique source of information on some of these topics. I appreciate your donation of this material to the Library where it can be used by students, faculty and members of the community. I am particularly pleased to have the desegregation material, which reflects your unique perspective as a [“]plaintiff[”] in the desegregation of Delaware schools. The desegregation of Delaware schools is one of our most heavily-researched topics and the material you have given us will quickly become an important resource for the students and scholars who research this topic..."

Murray, Head Special Collections, University of Delaware____________ Family Court Judge Aida Wasserstein:  “Dr. Lewis is sensitive, caring, capable, thorough, knowledgeable and willing to share his expertise.”  Delaware News Journal  Use link on this page for "MORE CONTACT/REVIEWS."
