It is with a great deal of sadness that I inform all of you that Black Film Society co-founder, and previous president and Chi~Voices supporter and co-writer for the screen, Marcus Martin, passed away yesterday morning of a heart attack.
Marcus, one of the most beautiful people that I knew was incredibly talented, funny and had drive like no other. He was part of the Columbia College Chicago community as well as Chicago’s Film Industry. He had some many things in the works, but was called home.
May we always keep him in our memories, and keep his legacy alive.
*The project will be on hold until further notice. Have no fear, it will get done. And it will get done very well. Many of us on the Chi~Voices crew and featured poets were very close to Marcus, so we need a bit of time. Thank you all of your continue support.
