    I just heard on the (black) community radio station that brought Brother Del Jones, author of Culture Bandits 1 & 2 amongst many other books, to the UK about 4 years ago, that he passed away this Thursday.

    I cant find anything on the internet to confirm, it but the broadcasters on this radio station are in close contact with him and I have no reason to doubt them.

    My sincerest condolences go out to his family, and may the ancestors bless this brother when then they meet on the other side.

    The Brother was a serious force with which to be reckoned. I just watched his lecture on The American [Negro] Factory last month.
    As he quoted Brother Malcolm: "A child isn't born dumb. A child is made dumb." I would like for him to now be in a better place than we.

    Del Jones, Amos Wilson, Johnny Cochran, Jacob Carruthers (even though I could have sworn he was in his 40's), William Cooper... I'm curious as to their true causes of death. Perhaps someone should research their autopsies where available. Seems fishy (they don't just blatantly shoot us dead anymore).
    Not to mention Julius Erving and Bill Cosby's sons. I understand Bobby Hemmit's mom just died last week as well.
