Our little girl has made her first lap around the sun. Our little one IS one (year old). Happy birthday, Wren Zazie Forté. This 🎈's for you. #wrenzazieforté

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.

Love.

Dancing in the kitchen with this little one just feels better. #wzf 📸❤️@laratf

S/O to new friend and old soul @nemomusic.ch
The opportunity to collaborate with others has been one of the most rewarding aspects of my profession. There have been many in the last few years - @sunsay_official @thisisfirehorse @thevaleriejune @naiakete @sophiehiller @bentaylormusic @dave2saws @carlysimonhq @talibkweli @bsatz @quietazmoney @sass.jordan @winners_o @natashabedingfied @saulwilliams @conversingwithoceans @raybomusic @itshollymusic @jeremy.campbell_ @luciesilvas @brothersosborne (and many others). These are people I admire, respect, learn from and love.
What a blessing it is to share this space and weave noise, rhythm and melody.

I am filled with gratitude.
