This news brought me to tears!
I had the honor and pleasure to craft and compose music for this show with my brother @bsatz. I deeply appreciate the folks at XCON/Juvee/@violadavis and their commitment to qualitative storytelling (with real-world results). After 19 years on Death Row… LIGHT!

Bless!!!!!!!!

Touched down last night in DC - for the Vote For Justice gathering of Artists and Activists at the Newseum - and I was greeted by my brothers @baba_lp_7 and @dcscroger. .
.
I spent much of the night in awe of the compassion, energy, talent and brain power in the theater. I became a super fan of folks I aready greatly admired: @nkechitaifa @michaelskolnik @goapele @kamalaharris @bkbmg @michaelericdyson @tichinaarnold @kemba_smith … and SO MANY MORE. #justicelookslike #voteforjustice #vfj #newseum .

So blessed to have been invited to play. Humbled and inspired to be in the presence of this movement. Grateful to love and be loved.

I am greatly looking forward to participating in the forthcoming Vote For Justice Roundtable this Wednesday, May 9th 2018 in Washington, DC. A gathering of some great hearts and minds. .

"In 2016, the United States is celebrating its 240th birthday. But even before Thomas Jefferson and the other founders declared independence, Americans were engaging in a polarized debate over racial disparities, over why they persist, and over why White Americans as a group were prospering more than Black Americans as a group. Historically, there have been three sides to this heated argument. A group we call 'segregationists' has blamed Black Americans as a group. A group we call 'antiracists' has pointed to racial discrimination. A group we call 'assimilationists' has tried to argue for both, saying that Black people AND racial discrimination were to blame for racial disparities…" - Prologue from Stamped From the Beginning, by Ibram X.

I trust my gut. And one thing I know is that I don't know enough. I look to my peers, family and friends (and, perhaps, especially so-called enemies) to help guide me through this experience in my quest for deeper meaning, understanding and truth.

Know-it-alls make me laugh.

It's all music.
