Clem's family has asked that in lieu of flowers or other expressions of remembrance, contributions be made to support Dr. Price's life's work at the Rutgers University-Newark Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience. Contributions should be made out to:

A celebration of Clem's life and legacy sponsored by Rutgers University-Newark through the Institute on Ethnicity, Culture and the Modern Experience is being planned in conjunction with the annual Marion Thompson Wright Lecture on the weekend of February 21, 2015.  Details will be announced in the coming weeks.

To provide an opportunity for all to share reminiscences of our beloved Clem, we have created a remembrance page on the Rutgers University-Newark website at We invite all members of the university, local, and global communities to submit your stories so we can all share them, just as we did this incredible human being.
