Lindsay Patterson, 1934-2009

lindsay-patterson-headshot.jpgWe were saddened to hear last week of the death of Lindsay Patterson, a retired professor from Queens College who also taught Afro-American and Carribbean literature at Hunter College. He wrote and edited several books, including Introduction to Black Literature in America, Black Theater, A 20th Century Collection of the Works of Its Best Playwrights, and A Rock against the Wind; African-American Poems and Letters of Love and Passion; excerpts from an unpublished novel, T-Baby, appeared in Essence (which was also one of the many magazines and newspapers to which he contributed journalism and criticism). He was also a regular presence on New York radio and television, conducting interviews with leading theatrical and cultural figures.

Patterson’s friends and colleagues are encouraged to contact his neighbor, Ellen Levene, at [ellenl2 AT nyc DOT rr DOT com] for information on a possible memorial service at a future date.
