I just found out late last night about the 24 July 2011, untimely passing of Sylvia Harris. Although we didn’t know each other personally, I was always inspired by and in awe of her wonderful and vital work in the field of design for social good and as a design educator. I’m blessed to share some very special friends with her, so I feel I have lost a friend in her. Thanking Michelle Washington for letting me know and for a wonderful tribute on her Cultural Boundaries blog. A link to her tribute is shown below. Sending love to her, Ricardo Gomes, Steve Jones, and Saki Mafundikwa, the dear friends Sylvia and I share.
Blessings to Sylvia’s family and community at this difficult time.
