Rest in Peace and Power

 

 


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

"Angela Davis must go free. Black people will be free. I've been locked up for disturbing the peace in Detroit and I know when you can't get no peace. Jail is hell to be in. I'm going to see her free if there is any justice in our courts, not because I believe in communism, but because she's a black woman and she wants freedom for black people. I have the money, I got it from black people — they've made me financially able to have it and I want to use it in ways that help our people."

RIP Queen of Soul :mellow:  You were truly one of a kind! In a freaky coincidence, Elvis Presley died on the same day (August 16, 1977), although it was 41 years ago.
