    The great Mahmoud El-Kati was my professor, teacher, mentor, and friend at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. I studied and learned the history of African American and African people under his brilliant tutelage. He was a guiding lights for thousands of African American and other students having the privilege to study history under Brother El-Kati at Macalester College. As my intellectual “father,” I learned a fountain of knowledge from this great man. The many, wonderful lessons I learned from this great teacher have guided me throughout my life. It remains one of the greatest honor in my life to have studied under this outstanding teacher. It remains a great honor to call this wonderful man my teacher and friend. Thank you for posting this fine article about Brother Mahmoud El-Kati.
