Steve Gilliard 1966-2007


The black blogging community lost a founding member today when the death of Steve Gillard was announced this evening. Words won’t properly express the sadness of this blogger for the loss of the News blog. His passionate defense of truth and progressive values set him apart as a blogger of heft and of heart. His passing is a tremendous loss for us and I extend my profound condolences to his family and to all those who knew and loved him.
