Margarita L. Dubocovich, senior associate dean for diversity and inclusion at UB’s Jacobs School of Medicine explains: Daniels was an advocate for diversity; his positive energy resonated strongly among his students. “His energetic personality resonated strongly,” she concludes.
As a seminary student in 1965, he answered Martin Luther King’s call for clergy to join the Civil Rights movement by traveling to Alabama to help register voters. While in Alabama assisting voter registration efforts, he and others were arrested at protests near Fort Deposit and jailed in Hayneville for six hot August days.
Early Life and Education
Jonny was raised devoutly religious in Keene, New Hampshire and attended Episcopal Theological School before enrolling into seminary studies. Attracted by its rich system of traditions and rituals, he decided that becoming a minister was his goal and attended seminary studies at Harvard Divinity School before entering Episcopal Theological School’s program of ordination as an Episcopal priest.
He dedicated his life to aiding others, working in various places including Alabama during the civil rights movement. In particular, he assisted black families during this southern state’s struggle for equal rights.
Jonny was an invaluable friend to the Jacobs School students and would always make time for them. His absence will be sorely felt by them – some even attending medical school as a result of him; he helped secure scholarships and grants as well.
Jonny has over 12 years of experience providing PR and strategic advising to various clients worldwide, and has been quoted in the media on various subjects. Additionally, he is active in Israeli politics serving as senior advisor for their Deputy Speaker.
He was an outspoken supporter of diversity. He actively recruited and mentored hundreds of students through the Jacobs School’s Early Opportunity Program in Medicine; additionally he worked closely with community students via his pediatric practice.
He also appeared in two trashy 1970s blaxploitation movies as super stud hairdresser Mr Jonathan in Greydon Clark’s comic “Black Shampoo”, and cunning pimp The Baron from Matt Cimber’s racy “Candy Tangerine Man”. Additionally he played a small part in 1976 film “Tender Loving Care.” His family survived him.
Achievement and Honors
Since Daniels’ heroic act, his name has been celebrated in multiple ways. Two books and a film have been written about him, while his hometown of Keene honored him with a plaque, while Episcopal congregations across the United States celebrate his feast day on August 16. Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center will speak at a service honoring Daniels at Washington National Cathedral this August 16th.
VMI established the Jonathan Daniels ’61 Humanitarian Award in his honor in 1997. President Jimmy Carter was its inaugural recipient. Additionally, one of VMI’s barracks and its memorial courtyard bear his name; further inspiring others to continue working towards civil rights.
Jonny Daniels took his studies seriously after suffering an almost-fatal fall at high school and also became more involved with his church’s Episcopal congregation.
After attending a church service, he and a friend missed their bus back, leading them to decide to spend the weekend in Selma instead of heading straight back. Once back at seminary, they asked permission to spend the remainder of semester studying on their own in Selma before coming back at end of term to take examinations.
Jonny Daniels’ selfless act was widely acclaimed, inspiring many to live lives of social dedication. To this day, his name remains prominently featured in Polish, Hebrew and English media; while his foundation continues its work of remembering and commemorating Holocaust victims in Poland.
