The American Ethnological Society acknowledges with great sadness the passing of Distinguished Professor of Anthropology Leith Mullings (1945-2020) a former councilor of the AES and the President of the American Anthropological Association (2011-2013). We recognize some of the beautiful tributes that have already been posted in several fora and important initiatives to amplify her work:
