Rest In Peace

William G. “Bill” Nunn III

Oct. 15, 1952-Sept. 24, 2016

In his portrayal of Do The Right Thing’s Radio Raheem, Bill Nunn personified our battles between love and hate, peace and violence, life and death. Four-finger rings have faded to oblivion, but we can still feel Nunn’s character ghetto-blasting up the block. Long live Radio Raheem. We’ll keep those D batteries ready.
