Classic Material: Curtis Mayfield

Curtis Mayfield Live

Black History Month or as some of the more progressive minds call it African Liberation Month is just about over and the video above is homage to yesteryear that put me in one of my more reflective moods. For me it conjures up memories of where we have been as a people and where we are about to go.  This video is social commentary at it’s finest by one of the most well known poets of 20th century….. and yes we the people darker than blue are still listening to you Mr Mayfield.
