Dr. Cedric Robinson, Professor Emeritus of Black Studies and Political Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, passed away this week. According to UCHRI Director David Theo Goldberg, “Cedric Robinson was a member of UCHRI’s residential research group on ‘Minority Discourses’ in 1991-2. His engagement with the group touched all, and marked their work and well beyond then and since in ways large, small, and enduring. A beacon to us all, we miss him deeply.”
