I think what you are asking, is why I am so insistent in giving out to them that BLACKness, that BLACK power…

“My job, is to somehow, make them curious enough – or persuade them… – to get more aware of themselves and where they came from and what they are into and what is already there, and just to bring it out. This is what compels me to compel them, and I will do it by any means necessary.” – Nina Simone

I watched the Nina Simone documentary (on Netflix) last summer and was completely moved and touched by the revolutionary spirit lying deep within this woman’s soul. For those who have not been exposed to her work, you MUST listen to her music and interviews. A brilliant woman, who sacrificed her career for the cause of justice.
