  • Art imitates our reflection and respect for living. Our young nation has
    the most promise and has had the most unsettling start to model
    freedom, justice, equality, democracy, materialism, pluralism,class-ism,
    tolerance while it at the same time never created “scared-cats” who
    were faint-of-heart about voicing the stapled diet difference between
    [our creedal] ideas and our slices of the pie dished “in the pursuit” of
    happiness according to social contract.
    Woodie King Jr. tells the
    story of a continuum of relationships that are profound to me as a black
    man. Plato thought the world to be of the makings of ideas… Mr. King
    is a straight shooter. I have been privileged to watch him and to get
    know him. He spends his life even today in-real-time around timeless
    icons. He is always where “makers” of art are and significant utterances
    are communicated even if it’s the first rhythmic sounds of young
    people. He pushes us to dramatically read and stage our best and to
    respond whether products whether we are ‘jaw-jacked’ or need
    conversation and dinner to compare notes. Today, right now…May Amiri
    Baraka rest in peace and may we in this beloved nation realize that even
    in our anger, disappointments, constructions, reconstructions,
    propaganda(s) and ‘pain-in-muse’ there is a deep and private love-song
    wrapped up in the beauty of America and we all court for her substance
    and idea/l.
