Dr Ben was a very funny man. He use to have me dying with laughter. I have always enjoyed laughter; I come from a family that loves laughter. Hence, it was quite natural for me to infuse laughter into my lessons as a teacher of history, and in this way, I consciously emulated Dr. Ben. Any student that had me as a teacher can admit to my blend of Pan-Afrikan, pro-Black orientation and humor. My classes were hilarious, thought-provoking, and Afrikan centered. And I have Dr. Ben to thank for it.
Rest in peace, in Amenta
