It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Ron Walters, an extraordinary political analyst, activist, and scholar, who succumbed to cancer on Sept 10th at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda Md. I remember Prof. Walters fondly from my undergraduate days at  Howard University where he taught political science. Of his many accomplishments, he was the driving force behind Rev. Jesse Jackson’s historic 1984 run for the presidency and the author of 10 books. I last saw him in Jan, 2009 at a book signing here in Washington, DC which I wrote about briefly. He will be greatly missed.
