Our deepest condolences from the Dept of Ethnic Studies on behalf of a beloved student leader

It is with deep regret and sadness, that the Department of Ethnic Studies officially acknowledges the passing of Ikenna “Kenna” Egbune, who was known and loved by many as a passionate, luminous being and ardent leader / advocate of justice and empowerment… and as a compassionate, caring friend.  He has touched so many lives here in the department and will always be remembered.

We would like to send our profound condolences to his loved ones, family, and friends.

The Ethnic Studies conference room (Ketchum 24) is open today for those who wish to gather, sit, and remember together.

Tonight at 8:00pm, a candlelight vigil will be held west of the Norlin Library / Quad (front steps).

Please be sure to take care of each other and yourselves.
