According to CNN, Bill Nunn, a cherished African American veteran actor has died. He was 62.

Nunn appeared in several Black cult classic films like; New Jack City, Sister Act and School Daze for starters but the phenom will probably most be remembered for one of the rawest performances of all time, as he brought the character of Radio Raheem to life in the Brooklyn based African American film “Do the Right Thing.”  Thanks to a stellar performance by Nunn, Radio Raheem became one the voices of an entire generation.

 

 

 

 

 

Spike Lee paid tribute to his beloved friend on Twitter calling him a dear friend and a great actor. Nunn and Lee both attended Morehouse College in Atlanta.
Nunn passed away Saturday in his hometown of Pittsburgh.
Said Lee,
“Radio Raheem is now resting in power,” Lee said. “Radio Raheem will always be fighting da powers dat be. May God watch over Bill Nunn.”
Our condolences go out to the Nunn family, as well as to his friends and legions of fans.
2016 has definitely claimed another great one. RIP Sir…Gone too soon.
