Yesterday my friend Jennifer Davis passed away.

She was surrounded by family and close friends. Jen was a true hero to me: Stalwart fighter against apartheid, defender of human rights. As director of The American Committee on Africa and The Africa Fund, she had significant impact on the direction of the anti-apartheid divestment campaign and as such was honored by the South African government for her contribution to the downfall of the apartheid regime.

But now I mourn her as one of my closest friends since 1967. HAMBA KAHLE my dearest friend, comrade, colleague. You are sorely missed.
