In sad news: I recently heard about yet another untimely and unfortunate death. Bebe Moore Campbell, prominent and legendary writer, mother of actress Maia Campbell, and University of Pittsburgh alum died of brain cancer 11/27/2006 in her home, with which she was diagnosed in February. Her latest and most compelling book 72 Hour Hold was released June 2005. I am personally stunned and shocked. She was not only beautiful on the outside, but her brain was beautiful, conjuring up tales and shining light on issues that struck us all. She will be forever remembered.
Bebe Moore Campbell dies at age 56.
