UNC professor Randall Kenan, Randall-Kenan-Let-Dead-Bury-Dead-gay-black-boyculture-bookrenowned for his writings on the Black gay experience, was found dead Friday, August 28, in his Hillsborough, North Carolina, home. He was just 57.

In a statement, Terry Rhodes, Dean of UNC's College of Arts & Sciences, said:

He was one of the leading lights at Carolina. He was a Tar Heel alumnus, a native North Carolinian who loved writing about his roots, beloved by his students, a mentor to younger writers and a master craftsman and storyteller. We will miss him greatly.

Born March 12, 1963, in Brooklyn, New York, he grew up in rural North Carolina. He discovered his love of writing while attending the UNC at Chapel Hill in the '80s.

Among his works, Kenan published the 1989 novel A Visitation of Spirits; the short story collection Let the Dead Bury Their Dead in 1992, which earned a Lambda Literary Award and was a New York Times Notable Book; the 1993 YA book James Baldwin: American Writer; and the 2007 nonfiction work The Fire This Time.

His final finished book, If I Had Two Wings, was published August 4, and he wrote movingly about the Confederate monument issue in an essay published August 18:

Make time to watch Ali LeRoi's The Obituary of Tunde Johnson at Outfest (it is viewable there through August 30) not only to support Outfest, to support independent film and to support LGBTQ film, but because it is likely to be one of the finest films you see all year.

Written by Stanley Kalu when he was a 19-year-old film student at USC, the film — about a gay Nigerian-American high school student killed by white police — could not be more of the moment, yet it was finished over a year ago, proving that its theme of pervasive racial inequality in the U.S. is sadly evergreen.
