In the city of Newark, Williams has served as the Director of Community Development and the Model Cities Program.

Join us for a brown-bag event, as Williams will lead a discussion on school reform based on his experience of resource deprivation and privatization of schools in Newark. Public school reform, Williams asserts, “is more than just a civil rights issue. It is a blueprint for control of resources in urban communities”.
