Hey everyone, I found out some really sad news today.
Ron Takaki, passed away last night.
For those of you who do not know who Ron Takaki is, he was a professor of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley, and was considered by many to be the "father" of multicultural studies. Here at Northeastern University, we were lucky to have the opportunity to bring Dr. Takaki to our campus, where he received an honorary doctorate.
Here's to Dr. Takaki. A leader, an activist, an author, an educator...an inspiration to all.
