Lewis Sinclair

I'm so sad to have just gotten the news that our beloved friend, Lewis Sinclair, just passed away. He was 94 years old. He leaves behind his beloved, Mary. I want to write so much about Mary and Lewis and will, but for now, I am comforted by the sound of his voice having a conversation with Mary about growing up as a light-skinned African American in Past Christian, Mississippi.

Here is a lovely picture of Lewis from the 1960s sent by another dear friend, Murphy Davis. Goodbye dear friend, teacher, revolutionary. You will be terribly missed.

Someone so very special and nice who will be missed by so many of us.

Our prayers and love go out to Mary and the rest of Lewis's family.

God bless and help you during this time.
