I am saddened to share that Professor Cheryl Wall, Board of Governors Zora Neale Hurston Distinguished Professor of English, has passed away. I cannot summon the words to express what she meant to the world, academia, Black folks, and Black women, in particular, I simply know that we are a better and richer community because of her. Without a doubt, she is resting in the arms of the Creator. Yet our souls weep and our hearts are broken.
