I will never forget the time i was able to spend with him at the Red Cat Jazz club in Houston, after he performed at the Hermann Park, including his 'infamous' 'Somebody Blew up Amerikka" . For days before the performance Jewish orgs worked to prevent it from going on threatening our esteemed elder He will be sorely missed but certainly now a force for us in the realm of the Egungun.

Back in the day we didn't really know what was going to happen next. Scared, angry and frustrated all I could do was listen though not undertanding. Today I think we all have finally learned something. Most of all I want to say thanks to you Amiri... Solitary Sister from the Bronx
