Sam Greenlee, Jr. Fund

On Monday, May 19, 2014 the world lost a solider for social change and freedom, and we lost a father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, and loving companion. Sam Greenlee, Jr. lent himself to the Foreign Service and the US Information Agency, but gave himself to his community, family, and friends. His life and legacy is one of service and commitment.

He was an author, film-maker, and music enthusiast. The book and feature film, “The Spook who sat by the door” will live forever – testifying to the seeds of racism and oppression deeply planted in the fabric of our nation, and the continual fight for freedom and justice.

We will celebrate his life and legacy on Friday, June 6, 2014 at the DuSable Museum for African American History in Chicago, Illinois starting at 6:30 PM. Your contribution will help the family meet their financial responsibilities and bring closure to some of his unfinished work. It is our hope to create a foundation in his name to support the communities he loved and the educational opportunities he deemed necessary for young people to explore new possibilities and perhaps launch system-changing movements.

Thank you for your loving support, thoughts, and prayers.
