Last week, Derrick Bell passed away with almost no fanfare, but in the spirit of acknowledging my elders, it is imperative that I acknowledge Dr. Bell’s life. I won’t go into a full biography of Dr. Bell’s life because you can easily google him if you so choose.
Let me say, though, that he was the father of critical race theory. He was a scholar/activist–bold in his writing and singular in his ability to discuss difficult subjects with ease and grace.
Some of his work can be purchased here.
Hetepu Dr. Bell. You are missed.
