Remembering Alonzo Smith

It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing on March 5 of our friend and activist Alonzo Smith after a battle with leukemia. Alonzo joined UULM-MD in 2016 and co-chaired the Criminal Justice Task Force with Candy Clark, joining our Board soon afterwards. He left in 2019 to spend more time working with the Poor People's Campaign.

A professor at Montgomery College, Dr. Smith brought with him a wealth of lived experience with racism and a thorough grasp of current social justice issues. At UULM-MD, he deepened our understanding of the complexities of racial issues and provided a broader perspective on options available to move towards reconciliation and justice. By those of us who knew and worked with him for a better world, he will be sorely missed. We love you, Alonzo.
