The University Center for Human Values joins the wider university community in mourning the death, and celebrating the life, of Albert Raboteau, the Henry W. Putnam Professor of Religion, Emeritus. He is remembered as a wise and generous colleague, mentor, and teacher, who profoundly shaped the fields of African American religious history, African American studies, and American religious history. Professor Raboteau was a founding member of the University Center’s executive committee. Most recently, he taught one of the inaugural seminars for UCHV’s Values and Public Life Program, in Fall 2012, on the topic of Thomas Merton & Martin Luther King, Jr.: Religion and Social Justice. We are grateful for the care and concern which he brought to the University Center and to the wider Princeton community.
