Remembering Derrick Bell

Doing antiracist work, it is impossible to not have the name Derrick Bell grace your presence.  Whether you are a college student learning about critical race theory or an educator trying to impart realities of racism to your students or an activist trying to make sense of the policies that maintains this cycle, Derrick Bell has always been there to guide us.

Derrick Bell was a man of incredible integrity.  Rather than give up on his beliefs, he fiercely held on to them.  He resigned from Harvard's Law School for continuing the de facto hiring practices of discriminating against women of color in the academy and resigned from the US Justice Department because, to them, membership to the NAACP and working for USJD was (is) mutually exclusive.  He cultivated a spirit of freedom to all with whom he interacted and sought to build a beloved radical community.  At the risk of his own safety, wherever he was, Professor Bell always stood on the side of justice.  He was, continues to be and will always be an inspiration to all of us.

But perhaps what we have written here does not do justice to the impact that Derrick Bell has had on us and it is our hope that a reflection written by our founder, Horace Seldon right after reading Professor Bell's Faces At the Bottom of the Well:  The Permanance of Racism will impart all that he means to us.

On The Permanance Of Racism by Horace Seldon

About CCI

CCI Logo

Community Change was born out of the Civil Rights Movement and in response to the Kerner Commission which named racism as "a white problem." CCI has done what few organizations are willing to do: shine a spotlight on the roots of racism in white culture with the intention of dealing with racism at its source, as well as with its impact on communities of color.
