Marona Amandla Memorial Fund

We mourn the passing of our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter and friend Marona Amandla on July 16, in Ann Arbor, Mich. Having battled a cancerous sarcoma successfully, she was diagnosed with treatment-induced leukemia in January 2013. Marona demonstrated remarkable strength and resilience in the face of a prognosis of imminent death. At only 28, she was already a beacon of light for many as a teacher, a journalist, and scholar.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Marona Amandla Memorial Fund which, in line with Marona's plans for her doctoral research, will be used to support scholars completing work in multiple identities, and particularly how these identities shape attitudes and behaviors related to social justice.
