Mark Q. Sawyer, Presente!
(January 10, 1972 – March 26, 2017)
We in the Department of African American Studies are mourning the sudden and tragic loss of our beloved colleague and friend, Mark Q. Sawyer. He was only 45. A genuine academic star in the areas of race, politics, and Latin America, Mark was Professor of African American Studies and Political Science. He has been a member of UCLA’s faculty since 1999, having arrived just as he received his doctorate in Political Science from the University of Chicago.
