Fr. Cyprian Davis has died

Sad news.

Fr. Cyprian Davis, OSB, has died at age 84. See: http://www.saintmeinrad.org/news/?story=11660

He was a legend of Black Catholic Studies (it wouldn't be tough to make an argument that he created the field). I wrote about him for Black Catholic History Month a couple of years ago: http://anikapalm.blogspot.com/2013/11/anika-myers-palm-cyprian-davis.html?m=1

May he rest well.
