When Manning Marable passed, his wife & partner Dr. Leith Mullings extended herself, her love, her mentorship, & academic guidance to me. For me she will always be my academic mom, a fierce advocate, & a dear friend & comrade. May the ancestors receive her in the highest station.
Oh my goodness this is devastating news! I can hardly believe it. My condolences to the @GCcunyAnthro community and all who knew and loved Leith. So many benefited of us from her scholarship, wisdom, and mentorship. Rest in peace and power, the great Leith Mullings. https://t.co/jNBBDIsFrR
