habtu_tnIn MemoriAm: Alem Habtu

Queens College’s Department of Sociology is saddened to announce the passing of Alem Habtu, an acclaimed teacher and scholar who gave nearly fifty years of service to our school, discipline and community.  Professor Habtu was one of the founding professors in the College’s Africana Studies program and helmed it for several years.  His Ethiopian homeland was important in his work and life, and he was considered an honored elder by many members of America’s Ethiopian community in the US. He was a valued contributor to the college’s SEEK program, and served as the Department’s chair.  He was a kind, hard-working, and unfailingly elegant man who will be deeply missed by all.
