A Moment of Silence for Dr. Donda West


Yesterday I woke up to the very sad news that Dr. Donda West (Kanye's mom) had passed away.
I had the pleasure of taking two summer school English classes with Dr. West when I was in college. She was such a phenomenal woman. She didn't just teach English - she taught black pride and black history.

I used to spend a few minutes after class talking to Dr. West when schedules permitted. We talked about books and writing. She was so encouraging and always wore a smile. I'm very happy to have been in her classes and to have learned from such an intelligent woman.
