Museum Launches Donnie Williams Biography

The Martial Arts History Museum is proud to release its latest biography, the life of one of the founders of the Black Karate Federation (BKF), Donnie Williams.

Now a Bishop, Williams played a key role in forming one of the biggest organizations for helping the African-American community back in the early 1970s. “The early 1970s was a tough time for the Black community, and the BKF provided karate lessons for young Black kids who couldn’t afford it. The BKF also created a voice for Black fighters on the tournament circuit, and at the time, it was the biggest federation in all of the martial arts,” notes Bishop Donnie Williams.

The biography is an in-depth look at this icon's life and the impact he made on history, and how he helped form the BKF. “The plan is for this and many other biographies to be part of the Museum’s Hall of Fame Wall. This way, 50 to 100 years from now, people can see his biography and understand the impact he made,” adds Matsuda.
