In Songhoy cosmology, Africans fly. The river motif is also deeply engrained in the psyche of Songhoy people and other Africans. Just to say that we Africans brought with us more than memories of our Holocaust. Thanks for the music and the care.

Dear Mtume ya Salaam

I have never read a better take on the great Gil Scot Heron. You are obviously leaps and bounds beyond some of the other commentors, especially he one that talks of space ships. Not to put that commentor down, this person’s life experiences are different and probably such that would disqualify himor her from commenting on African American life experiences.

I am a lifelong fan of Gil Scot Heron, Brain Jackson and the Midnight Band, in fact they performed for our homecoming celebration at Morehouse College in 1974. I beleive that Gil was also a member of of gruop known as the Last Poets.
