Port Of Harlem contributor and Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership founding board of directors member Attorney Kevin Turner made his transition after a series of health challenges early on  Christmas Day, December 25, 2020.

The Hampton, Virginia native wrote the following articles that appeared in print issues of Port Of Harlem:

2003- Going to, Rather than Around, Richmond

2004 - Our Cuban Cousins
¬°Habani Si! Discover the island of Cuba with our travel writer Kevin Turner, Esquire.

2004 - FEEL The POWER!
an interview with:  Melanie Campbell of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation

After a trip to The Gambia in 2006, Turner assisted in the formulation of the non-profit, Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership. It was though his insistence that “Partnership” is included in the name to signify that we work with our Gambian cousins versus only imparting to them information, goods, or any other thing.

In 2006, Turner was a part of the POHGEP delegation that handed Executive Director of the National Council of Arts and Culture Momodou C. Joof a limited edition drawing of Martin Robison Delany, the father of Pan-Africanism. The Delany picture hangs in the Juffureh Slavery Museum in Juffureh.

The partnership continues with the non-profit just announcing in the last issue the development of our latest exhibit From These Shores. A panel acknowledging Turner’s contribution to the exhibits is being planned as part of the exhibition.
2006- POH Donates Delany Picture to The Gambia National Museum

Memorial services are pending and will probably occur after January 5.
