Miami Valley StoryCorps: Bing Davis & Margaret Peters

May 11, 2011

"I've been blessed with many blessings...two of my blessings are being born black and growing up in East Dayton."

Bing Davis is an artist, educator and cultural leader in Dayton. Born the son of North Carolina sharecroppers, his family moved to Dayton when he was just two weeks old. Bing Davis and his friend and associate – Margaret Peters – went to the StoryCorps booth to talk about growing up on Dayton's east side, and how Bing is using the lessons he's learned in life – to teach others.
