In Memoriam

Posted January 15, 2013: We announce with great sorrow that Center for Political Studies (CPS) Professor Hanes Walton passed away on Monday January 7, 2013. CPS Director Nancy Burns notes that "Hanes Walton transformed a field. With his books on black politics, he created the theoretical and empirical building blocks for the study of African-American politics and political behavior. He was a key mentor to generations of scholars in the field. Walton was a generous and passionate scholar and colleague."
