Anthony Lemelle Jr (1952-2014), RIP

I received news today of the death of the renowned sociologist Anthony Lemelle, Jr. who until his death was professor at John Jay College and Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He was also for long time the editor-in-chief of the Journal of African American Studies on the board of which I serve. We never met in person, but from my interactions with him, he came across as a man of great personal and intellectual integrity. May he rest in peace.+++

This is an announcement prepared by his sister:
