Dr. Asa Hilliard joins the ancestors…

Dr, Hilliard was a towering presence within the Afrikan scholarly community. His passing is a loss in that it deprives us of his physical presence, but he has left a legacy of work of which he can rightly be proud.

From the Global African Presence list, @ my good friend Runoko Rashidi:

Greetings Family,

Just received the very bad news from his daughter that my brother, friend, and teacher Dr. Asa Hilliard just passed in Egypt. It seems like complications from malaria. A true giant has fallen and he will be sorely missed.

In love of Africa,

Runoko Rashidi
