RIP Lindon Barrett [including memorial and tribute information]

[DECEMBER 29, 2009 UPDATE — I have just received word of this report from the Long Beach Press-Telegram regarding the suspect who had been held for trial.]

[NEW OVERALL INTRO, TUESDAY EVENING, JULY 22, 2008 — Earlier this evening (a beautiful and serene one, even by Southern California standards) Prof. Barrett’s ashes were scattered in the Pacific in keeping with his wishes. My own reflections on tonight and the past week may be read here (this was written and linked the following day).

This blog post should now be considered a further, unofficial general information location dedicated to the memory of Prof. Barrett, with the ‘main’ text appearing first, in the form I left it in on Wednesday July 16, and overall links and updates to memorial plans, tributes and similar news following in separate sections below that. If anything of immediate importance needs to be added or changed, I will have a brief headline at the top of the blog run for a limited amount of time indicating what this is.

Please feel free to visit or link to this site as you see appropriate, as well as suggesting changes or additions via comments or direct e-mail.

Thanks very much, and let me thank everyone, especially Prof. Barrett’s cousins Ann and Kizzy, for all their many kind comments over this past week — I have tried to my best, and will continue to do so.]

It’s with great sadness I pass on news of the passing of Lindon Barrett, who taught in the UCI English and Comp Lit department during my years as a grad student there in the early to mid 1990s. Dan Tsang here at UCI passed on the initial news via a post on his Subversity radio show site, as well as an e-mail note he sent out to a number of people Monday night, including KUCI staff members and alumni, which is how I heard of the tragedy. The OC Register’s College Life blog had one of the first formal reports on Tuesday morning, including comments from Dan and Prof. Barrett’s fellow academics James Tobias, George Haggerty and Jennifer Doyle. On Wednesday afternoon, the College Life blog posted this further update indicating a formal report on Prof. Barrett’s passing may not be due for some time due to the necessity of a toxicology screen. The chair of UCR’s English Department, Katherine Kinney, issued this statement on Tuesday; at UCI, the Dean of Humanities, Vicki Ruiz, also issued a statement. Further news reports have also now appeared as of Wednesday morning at the LA Times and the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

Prof. Barrett had most recently been working at UC Riverside, where a memorial page via the English department may be found. His old UC Irvine page may be found here, and Google Books offers up pages of his book Blackness and Value. Retired UCI librarian Eddie Yeghiayan has compiled an overall bibliography of Prof. Barrett’s professional work and made it available as a PDF download via Dan Tsang’s Subversity blog.

Prof. Barrett’s areas of interest did not dovetail directly with my area of research while in the English department and so I did not take any courses with him, and at most we only ever exchanged a few brief words at the time. But as you can see from his photos on the pages he was impossible to miss when over at the department, a striking looking man who always carried himself with a strong sense of grace and power in equal measure. The fact that he was an associate editor for the academic journal Callaloo for three years, from 1997 to 2000, gives a sense of how he was regarded both in the fields of literary criticism and African American Studies; he was director of the latter program at UCI from 2004 to 2007, and there will be many people on the campus who will be grieving.

Over the years a number of people who I knew and/or worked with during grad school have passed on, including two of my advisors, Al Wlecke and Homer Brown, gracious and intelligent gentlemen both. Prof. Barrett’s death now adds to that sad total.

My condolences to his friends and family and all those who were his students and close colleagues.

Prof. Barrett’s family released this obituary via the Winnipeg Free Press a few days after the initial news:

http://www.passagesmb.com/obituary_details.cfm?ObitID=138240

His cousin Kizzy posted this statement on Facebook shortly beforehand:

I am Lindon’s cousin and on behalf of the family we send our heartfelt thanks to his friends and students in Los Angeles, and elsewhere. We are also very grateful for the love and support of friends who have called and visited during this difficult time.

He was a man of independent thought and was fearless in his views. He told you what he thought, made you think, but also made you laugh. He loved his family and friends and would turn up for a visit surprising them and making the most of every moment.

Lindon loved to spend time looking out over the Pacific Ocean and in accordance with his wishes, he will be cremated and returned to the sea. A memorial service will be held in Winnipeg at a later date.

A bright light has gone out, but he will be remembered forever.

Flowers are gratefully declined. Because of Lindon’s love of reading, if so desired a donation to the Winnipeg Public Library or a charity encouraging literacy would be most appreciated.

If you would like to make a donation in Prof. Barrett’s name, here are some recommended options:

The Winnipeg Public Library’s donation page is here:

http://wpl.winnipeg.ca/library/contact/donations.asp

I have spoken with Arthur Cohen at the WPL — he sends his condolences to all. He has confirmed that all currencies are welcome and that conversion to Canadian dollars are not needed; also he has confirmed that electronic submissions such as PayPal are not available at the present time, so please print out the form as the page indicates and send a check or money order. Thanks to Arthur for this information.

An initial resource page for other charities supporting literacy can be found at this blog entry at the Well-Read Child.

On Facebook, Tara has also suggested further donations to the Long Beach Public Library since, to quote her, “There are a lot of local youths who would really benefit from that.” I fully concur, and recommend the Long Beach Public Library Foundation in particular:

http://lbplfoundation.org/

To quote its mission statement, “The Long Beach Public Library Foundation dedicates itself to raise funds to provide supplemental programs that assist the Long Beach Public Library to promote literacy and meet the educational and informational needs of our culturally diverse community.” Its donation information page is here:

http://www.lbplfoundation.org/support.html

Also on Facebook, Benjamin Huang has suggested, to quote his post, “Room to Read, which promotes the development of children’s libraries in native languages in Africa (South Africa and Zambia) and Asia (Vietnam, Nepal, etc.). Founded by a former Microsoft executive, it is a nonprofit which is unaffiliated with any governmental or religious organization.” Its link is:

Any further suggestions for links or updates to these sites are gratefully encouraged.

On Monday morning July 21, Dan Tsang, host of the show Subversity on KUCI, broadcast a memorial show to Prof. Barrett. In-studio guests included former UCI Ph.D students Arnold Pan (now teaching at UCI) and Lelia Neti (now at Occidental College) as well as Jamie Park, a former UCI undergraduate student now pursuing her Ph.D at UCR. Calling in were Katherine Kinney, who chairs the English department at UC Riverside, and her UCR colleague, George Haggerty, as well as Prof. Winston James, a former chair of the African American studies program at UCI. Many statements from friends and colleagues were read over the air during the hour long show.

The show was a copresentation with KUCR in Riverside. You may access a podcast of the show directly via this link:

http://www.kuci.org/podcastfiles/600/Sv080721.mp3

The overall archive Subversity podcast archive may also be used.

Further memorials to Prof. Barrett’s life were held at UCI on September 30 and at UCR on October 1. My thoughts on the UCI memorial may be read here.

MLA 2009 PANEL INFORMATION — Benjamin Huang posted this suggestion on the Facebook group: “According to the MLA website, July 25th is the deadline for a Call for Papers for the 2009 Convention for the Fall 2008 Newsletter. Is there an Americanist out there familiar enough with Lindon’s work who could write a CFP and head up a panel?”

In comments below, Jennifer Brody responded: “I would be willing to organize a panel for next year’s MLA. I can write a call for papers on “Blackness and Value” which was published in 1999–which seems fitting. Thank you.” She has since confirmed that this has been sent to the MLA and encourages everyone to look for the call in the MLA newspaper.

A list of links to tributes follows:

I would also be very happy to post links to any further remembrances or tributes to Prof. Barrett as they appear; the comments I’ve received on this post and other comments I’ve noticed elsewhere, as well as some brief private discussion, emphasizes how much more directly and closely others worked with him and felt inspired and energized by him than I ever had the opportunity to do. Theirs, not mine, should be the words and memories that describe the professor and the man, and they should receive the most attention.

On December 25, 2009, the man accused and held for trial in the passing of Prof. Barrett was found dead at LA County Men’s Central Jail. He had been scheduled to go to trial on January 22, 2010.

Finally, this was one of a set of flowers left at the door of Prof. Barrett’s apartment building by his friends and colleagues:

Flowers for Lindon

Rest in peace.

    On behalf of the family, I will say thank-you for the kind words “Thank You”.

    In accordance with Lindon’s wishes, he will be cremated and his ashes scattered into the ocean. His memorial service will be held in his hometown of Winnipeg,Manitoba, Canada; Date to be determined.

  2. Ned Raggett Says:

    Thank you Ann — I will update this entry with this information. Please feel free to pass on anything else.

  3. Marcelle Says:

    I send my love to his family and the family he created at UCI. I would never have had the courage to become an academic if it weren’t for Lindon. He changed my life and I will miss him so much.

  4. Oh! Industry Says:

    We also welcome posts in honor of Lindon’s life, work and love of music on Oh! Industry (see link above). Our music and words in tribute may also be found there. Thank you, Ned, for providing a space for tribute here on your blog.

  5. Amy Kim Says:

    I was mentored by Lindon as an undergraduate student at UCI and was deeply inspired by him. This man was extremely brilliant and cared about his students. I will miss him. I send my condolences to his family.

  6. Hortense Spillers Says:

    The worse news I’ve heard all year came to me this morning about Lindon Barrett from a colleague. What happened to him is unspeakable, and I won’t get over it soon. But I wrote a tribute to him some years ago in an essay of mine that appears in my collection of essays, and it says something to the effect that as a member of an older academic generation, I was hoping to leave a “cleaner space” for all the “arriving company,” or the next generation of African-American scholars, to work in. And so, I said, “I cleaned my house,” to echo William Faulkner. To my mind, Lindon exemplified the younger cohort, and he is directly named in the piece. Today, I am happy to have memorialized him, though his death is coming far too soon.

  7. Tina Feldmann Says:

    My prayers go out to Lindon’s family. Lindon was such a bright light to UC Riverside. As a staff member, I can say that he was always kind, friendly, and respectful to all the staff. And the smile that you see in his pictures is the way he looked all the time…every day. He was warm and friendly and courteous. It was a pleasure to work for him. He will be greatly missed.

  8. Sharon Oster Says:

    I posted a longer comment to Oh! Industry, but here I just want to send my love and prayers to his family. He touched my life and he will be missed.

  9. Jamie Park Says:

    I would not be here today if it weren’t for Dr. Barrett. He believed in me, and chose to express that in the time he generously offered me, in the way he engaged with my work and tirelessly encouraged my feeble efforts towards becoming a scholar. His humility and gentleness always blew me away, and is something that continues to serve as a model for me. I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am to have met and been influenced by him. I am honored and so proud to have been (and to still be) his student, and to call him a mentor and I know that every single aspect of my career will be a living legacy and tribute to his life and work. To the Barrett family: Thank you for bringing Lindon into this world, and for blessing all of us with such a beautiful, brilliant and incredibly generous human being. My prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. I am just one of many who have been forever shaped and changed radically by Lindon’s life and example.

  10. Mike Says:

    I met Lindon at a time when I was just beginning to realize what I wanted to do with my life. He helped guide me through the process of applying to graduate school and served as an informal adviser as I was working on my dissertation. But what I’ll miss the most is his friendship that grew out of our professional relationship. I’ll miss the little things the most–the way he used to freak my cats out by doing things like blowing cigarette smoke in their faces and the time that he got lost trying to navigate my apartment complex when he was drunk. Those are the things I’ll miss the most, the things which made him more than just a professor to me.

  11. James Krasner Says:

    Lindon and I were graduate students together at the University of Pennsylvania. He was a sweet, good-hearted person, who drove my dog to the vet and took me shopping at big suburban grocery stores for fun. And he always ran out of gas, but it was fun hitchhiking with him. He was always joyful, self-conscious and funny, and a wonderful friend. And yes, of course, he was brilliant and intellectually daring as well. I will miss his warm heart and his smile.

  12. Vivian Folkenflik Says:

    I taught with Lindon for three years some time ago in the UCI Humanities Core Course. A thousand students a year– that’s three thousand. Harlem Renaissance, Tarzan, Larsen. It’s thanks to him that I re-accessed a lot of music that mattered to me in my childhood and matters to me now. I also remember the lovely evening Bob and I shared here with his parents, who were visiting, one friend of his parents’, two friends of ours. May others too be able to think about the good things they remember sharing with Lindon.

  13. Vanessa Osborne Says:

    I’ll miss Lindon Barrett’s sharp intellect and soft spoken timbre. I’ll miss seeing the smile break out on his face when someone in seminar said something surprisingly smart. I’ll miss his brilliant scholarship that always challenged and fascinated me. American Studies has suffered a massive loss, a brilliant scholar and a wonderful person has been torn from us. He will be missed.

  14. Michele Says:

    I took Lindon’s seminar in 2002 during my first quarter of grad school at UCI and his ongoing encouragement and support of my work helped to sustain me throughout a difficult first year. While in recent years I’ve lost touch with Lindon, my memory of him is vivid. I’m now nearing the end of my grad school experience and I’m so thankful he was there at the beginning.

  15. Tara Says:

    If ever there was an angel on earth it would have been Professor Barrett. Just looking at him you could tell… he had more life in him than most would ever hope to know. He was so beautiful and different. He seemed higher, but was so down-to-earth.

    My heart is broken. Now that I am starting graduate school, I only find solace in the fact that I got to tell him just how absolutely important he was to my intellectual growth. He completely opened my eyes, and I hope that I will do him proud.

  16. Lillian Manzor Says:

    I am still in shock. Lindon and I were colleagues at UCI when English and Comparative Literature were one department. For many years, we were the only two professors of color in the bastion of deconstruction and critical theory. We went through many instances of overt and covert racism: from a senior colleague suggesting to him “to go back to the ghetto” to sly remarks about my linguistic infelicites. Lindon was able to navigate these difficult moments with elegance and wit. We would read these experiences critically, and in discussion with colleagues he was always able to transform them into a learning experience–theory in the flesh that left no apparent bitterness. Always funny and full of a joie-de-vivre, he never lost sight of what was important to him and why he was there: the undergraduate and graduate students to whom he served as devoted professor and mentor. May all of us who knew him honor him and his family by never losing sight of what he taught us through his writings and his actions.

  17. Vicki Says:

    I, too, remain in shock. I had the honor of studying with Lindon as an undergrad at UCI. Lindon was a generous scholar, a kind soul, and inspiring to his students. He will truly be missed.

  18. Kendra Hamilton Says:

    I met Lindon through Callaloo. What a beautiful spirit, a profound intellect–what a terrible loss!!!

  19. tessa winkelmann Says:

    Professor Barrett was one of my favorite professors at UCI. All of my english major compatriots would probably agree that he was brilliant, funny and comanding. After my first class with him, i tried to take as many of his classes that i could fit into my schedule. His word helped spur my desire to pursue academia for social change. I will miss him so much.

  20. Janet Says:

    Lindon’s friends have set up a memorial of flowers outside of his building in downtown Long Beach as a tribute to him. If you would like to contribute flowers, his apartment building is at the corner of 5th and Pine. It is in keeping with Lindon’s life to leave spontaneous evidence of the beautiful collective spirit that was always at the center of his heart and mind.

  21. Ned Raggett Says:

    Thank you Janet — I will update the post to reflect this and provide a Google Maps location for reference.

  22. Bob Myers Says:

    Lindon and I met over ten years ago, and his smile never changed. Sometimes that’s what we offer when we offer our best: encouragement, compassion, celebration and the knowledge that this too shall pass. This is what has always carried us through…Be strong for Lindon, and let his requiem be your smile.

  23. Valerie T Says:

    May God Bless and comfort his family. May his students and colleagues continue his legacy!!!

  24. William McGee Says:

    I took one of Prof. Barrett’s African American lit courses this past spring. His skills as a professor were only matched by the beauty of his soul. His energy will be missed, but I am grateful for the period of time in which I was able to spend with Professor Barrett.

  25. Molly Lindsay Says:

    I am devastated. Words cannot express my grief. Jamie Park, whose entry is above, expresses my thoughts better than I could at this time – I feel exactly as he does. Lindon was not only a professor of mine, but also a friend. We spent time together, laughing often and always engaged in some kind of fun. He spoke of his family, people I wish I could meet, in times of quiet reflection. My heart goes out to you. I’m so angry at myself for not calling him lately – I’ll never have the chance to speak with him again. I hope that those of us who cared so deeply for him can put together a local memorial service. Please post here if one happens to occur.

  26. Arnold Pan Says:

    Thank you, Ned, for taking the initiative to set up a centralized site for everyone to participate in celebrating Lindon’s life. If possible, could those visiting the flower memorial outside of Lindon’s loft building contact me at arnold.pan@gmail.com? Leila Neti and I set things up this afternoon, and it would be great to see how it progresses. Once I figure out how to download the picture from my cellphone, I’ll post it here, if possible.

    We are also trying to figure out a way for people in the Irvine area to drop off flowers on campus for us to convey to Long Beach. I know many people would like to contribute, but may not have the time to drive to Long Beach. Feel free to email if you are interested in such a plan.

  27. Alexandria Gurley Says:

    I must say that I did not have the pleasure of speaking to Prof. Barrett as often as I should have, and so getting to know him more personally was not a specific luxury of mine. But I was blessed to take one of his courses in the Spring of 2007 at UCI. Those 10 short weeks I spent in his classroom was certainly an enlightening experience. He was truly one of the few professors in the Af Am department that made me even more glad I chose it as my major. I must say that not one day passed that he did not have a smile on his face. I pray God bless and keep his family in this time of grief and may God also bless his soul. R.I.P.

  28. Laura Lozon Says:

    I only had the pleasure of knowing Lindon for a short time but he was just the nicest person and I will really miss him. He always had that beautiful infectious smile on his face! He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  29. Anna Says:

    I am so, so shocked to hear the sad news. While I did not know Lindon personally, I had seen him give a speech in a conference and have heard good things about his classes. My condolences to his family at this sad time.

  30. Tara Says:

    Anyone who wants to go to Prof. Barrett’s former apartment building to leave flowers should know that the flowers will immediately be trashed after you leave. I don’t think management is taking kindly to all the bad publicity.

    I went by there earlier this evening, and afterward went to a local restaurant for dinner… or what I could stomach. When I drove by again afterwards, everything had been torn down.

    Some might think that management moved the flowers inside, but they didn’t. Inside is clean as a whistle.

    I will try to post photos on the facebook site tonight per Arnold’s request.

  31. Dwight A. McBride Says:

    I met Lindon when he was a young assistant professor at UCI and I was a graduate student at UCLA. He was at times colleague, mentor, and friend. Lindon was one of the first two people to model for me how to be black and gay in the academy in a way that is uncompromising. He was among the most brilliant minds of our generation in our field of black literary and cultural studies. But he never wore that mantle in any way except to be generous with his gifts and of service to others.

    He was a colleague who did the work of reading the work of younger scholars. He did the work of serving as associate editor of CALLALOO. He did the work of organizing symposia and opportunities to bring scholars together for conversation. He did the work of administration when he stepped up to direct African American Studies at UCI. He was always modeling for us all how to be of service in this profession.

    And he believed passionately in the power of scholarship to change people. That’s why he wrote with such fervor. Lindon was a prolific author of articles and essays; author of a brilliant book; and was at work on a new book that was likely to be among the most powerful statements on slavery for our time.

    And he believed powerfully in taking in the beauty in life and in making sure we did not forsake the pleasures of life. Few people could have convinced me–as Lindon once did–that our dancing until all hours in a nightclub in Los Angeles constituted an act of radical resistance. His passion was a huge part of his charm and appeal.

    I will miss his deep humanity, his courage, his love, and most of all his incredible light, which gave so many others permission to shine as well.

  32. Tara Says:

    Someone just suggested this to me, and perhaps it is a more optimistic answer:

    Instead of someone throwing away the flowers, maybe they brought it up to his apartment? I’m sure he had friends in his apartment complex and being friends, rather than leaving the flowers out by the sidewalk, they brought the flowers up to the prof’s apartment door. There really no way of us knowing whether the flowers have been discarded or carried upstairs.

  33. Piya Chatterjee Says:

    I never met Lindon but had heard that he was at UCR–and what a coup it was that UCR’s English Department “get” him. I wish, now, that I had looked him–shared a cup of tea. Folks who knew him spoke of his gentleness and his amazing smile— as much as his brilliance as a scholar and teacher : as a friend said of him, he was a true “soul worker.” What an extraordinary loss for all of us–at UCI, UCR, and beyond.

    So, all the way from eastern India, I would like to send my deepest condolences and prayers to his family at this time of sorrow. I pray his Spirit flies in peace.
    Piya Chatterjee, faculty member, WMST

  34. Tara Says:

    Now that I think of it… It is possible, but I don’t think friends would have the audacity to move a memorial like that. If anything they would add to it. Plus, I’m sure the police don’t want anything near the crime scene right now… wouldn’t be surprised if the front door area of his loft is inaccessible even to people who live inside the building.

    But it is anybody’s guess. The main point is that people tried in the first place, so it is all good.

  35. lini Says:

    Lindon’s family has posted an announcement of his passing:

  36. Tina Says:

    Thank you Ned for providing this space with information and updates re: memorial service and memorial pages. It was quite a shock to learn of Prof. Barrett’s death, and my deepest condolences to his family, friends, students, and colleagues. He gave me many of the opportunities I’ve had to teach at UCI for which I am very grateful. His intellect and conversation were unrivaled. I know he will be greatly missed. Respect.

  37. Leila Says:

    Dear Ned,

    I just wanted to post an update about the memorial service for Lindon. The information previously posted was incorrect. There will be no service at the McKenzie Mortuary. The ceremony on the boat will private by the family’s request. Those of us who know Lindon will appreciate the confusion!

    Best,
    Leila

  38. Ned Raggett Says:

    Thank you Leila! Very good of you to post this information. I will immediately update this by reposting your note in the blog and elsewhere.

  39. Katherine Kinney Says:

    I wanted to let all Lindon’s friends know that there will be a memorial on the University of California, Riverside campus in the fall (probably October) and it will be open to the public. As soon as we have a day, time, and place confirmed, we will post it on the English department website: english.ucr.edu.

  40. Ned Raggett Says:

    Thanks very much, Katherine — I will put a brief note about this near the top as well.

  41. Jennifer D. Brody Says:

    I would be willing to organize a panel for next year’s MLA. I can write a call for papers on “Blackness and Value” which was published in 1999–which seems fitting. Thank you.

  42. Ned Raggett Says:

    Thanks Jennifer — I will make a note of this up above.

  43. Arthur L. Little, Jr. Says:

    It’s difficult to picture Lindon’s face and not see his locks dangling across his smile. The loss of Lindon is one of those impossible losses, one of those moments of ineffability, of being overpowered and overwhelmed. I have spent the past few days trying to comprehend, to experience, the brilliance, vitality, and purposefulness that have been taken away from us. On more than a few occasions these nearly past two decades, when I’ve found myself laughing, filled with emotional and intellectual cheerfulness and defiance as a response to some of those things some of us find ourselves experiencing as black gay academics and people, I always knew Lindon–unapologetic and supportive–was somewhere hanging out in the neighborhood.

  44. kavita Says:

    Lindon’s passing is unacceptably tragic. My deepest condolences to his family.
    I wish things could have been otherwise; he loved life and had many great years ahead of him. He had labored lovingly over this second book, and those who heard him speak of it anticipated an important intellectual intervention. His brilliance and generosity will always be remembered by colleagues and students who had the privilege of sharing time and thoughts with him.
    Kavita
