Dr. Keiffer Mitchell

As a child, Dr. Keiffer Mitchell watched as his famous father – Clarence Mitchell, Jr. – confronted opponents of school desegregation.

A fourth grader, when the famous Brown vs. Board of Education decision came down, he never forgot the image of his father’s witness for equality in America – and for his son.

As a recent graduate of Lincoln University, his father – Clarence Mitchell Jr. -- got a job reporting for the Afro American newspaper. One of his first assignments was the lynching of George Armwood in 1933.
