Dear Howard University Community,

Passing of Hugh Masekela

Friday, January 26, 2018

Dear Howard University Community, 

I wish to express my deep condolences regarding the passing of jazz legend and anti-apartheid activist, Hugh Masekela on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. A groundbreaking trumpeter, singer, and social activist, Hugh Ramopolo Masekela was born on April 4, 1939, in the town of Witbank, South Africa.  A world-renowned trumpeter, composer, and singer, he was well known for his jazz compositions, as well as his vocal role as an advocate of equal rights in South Africa.  His compositions, including well known anti-apartheid songs such as Bring Him Back Home, Soweto Blues, and Stimela (The Coal Train) helped make him one of the key musical voices of the anti-apartheid movement.
