What wonderful man.I have several of his books and a great photo of him. One of my fondest memories of this grand man was that I was driving down halsted street here in Chicago,and who should I see on the corner but Lerone Bennett. I stopped and introduced myself and asked if he would like a lift that I was on my way to PUSH. He said yes and I took him to HydePark where he was to speak. We had a wonderful conversation and I let him know that I was a friend of Pyll Garland who had worked with him at Ebony. My condolences to his family.
