Passing of Anthony Kaye

With great sorrow, I have to report the passing of Dr. Anthony Kaye. Tony was a dear friend and collaborator of the Lapidus Center. Since the inception of the fellowship program he was a member of the selection committee and, despite his illness, he was actively engaged in our latest round just two months ago.

In the past few years Tony was researching and writing a book on Nat Turner. As an expert on the topic, I invited him to talk about Turner in November 2015. Tony’s conversation with Thulani Davis, “Nat Turner: Rebel and Prophet” drew a huge crowd.

Tony was a remarkable man and scholar and he will be missed.
