Martin Bernal, academic, author – of amongst other things Black Athena – husband, father, grandfather, linguist, lover and singer of folk music, political activist and so many other things, died on 9th June 2013. He will be very greatly missed. My dad.
There is an obituary for him in the Ithaca Journal – here. I hope there will be more in the next few weeks, to which I will link. I may also write more myself when the time comes.
