Letter of Rec. from Michael Dinwiddie

  1. 1. To Whom it May Concern: It is my great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Mr. Clarence B. Rivette. I have known Clarence for five years, as his advisor, as a student in my course Poets in Protest: Footsteps to Hip Hop, and as a friend with whom I continue to respond about politics, art, literature, and urban studies. An impressive and disciplined individual, Clarence was always prepared in his coursework, on time and present for class, and an active participant in very heated classroom debates. Always respectful of his peers, Clarence never shied away from expressing his own opinions. He often analyzed an argument in a way that brought clarity to the discussion at hand. His writing reflects a level of proficiency and intellectual depth that well equips him for the legal field. In his extracurricular activities, Clarence was a legal courier in high school, and worked as both a gallery assistant and as an editorial assistant while at NYU. His internship reports have been laudatory, praising his eagerness to learn and his positive approach to problem solving. His volunteer work with the Fortune Society, which involved tutoring ex-offenders in preparation for GED testing, his work in music productions, and his general creative drive are clear indications of his desire to make a positive contribution to the world in which he lives. Clarence is also a talented musician who has performed, traveled and maintained his studies and professional responsibilities at the same time. He is accustomed to working hard, and I have no doubt that he will excel in whatever he chooses to pursue. Sincerely, Michael D. Dinwiddie Associate Professor New York University The Gallatin School of Individualized Study 715 Broadway, #806F New York, NY 10003 (212) 998-9152
