The editors and editorial board of Nka mourn the death of Okwui Enwezor, our dearest friend, brother, colleague, fellow traveler, and founder and coeditor of our journal, who died on March 15, 2019, as this issue went to press. Our loss is inestimable, but at this time our thoughts and prayers are with his family in Nigeria, the United States, and the United Kingdom. In the coming months we shall decide how best to commemorate Okwui, celebrate his work, and help sustain and perpetuate his tremendous legacy as a curator, art historian, critic, public intellectual, and scholar. We appreciate all the condolences sent to our journal and to us as coeditors. And we promise to continue to work toward the realization of Okwui's vision of a robust, postcolonial, and more ethical contemporary art. Okwui's vision was larger than life, as he changed the art world and made it less Eurocentric and more global, mirroring the realities of our world, as it has always. With every resource available to us, we shall not relent in our support for the work of artists from Africa, the African diaspora, and the global south. [End Page 5]
