Aimé Césaire (1913-2008)

Poet Aimé Césaire has died. Césaire was an extremely influential Martinican writer, intellectual, politician and staunch anti-colonialist. You can read an appreciation from openDemocracy here and a New York Times obituary here.
Update (27 April) ~ there is a nice appreciation by Robyn Kelley here at Democracy Now!.
