Afrika’s Struggle at a Jazz Concert

I am meeting backstage with the legendary jazz musician/recording artist Andreas Winter and his band after a performance in Manhattan.

Herr Winter (a close friend) is Austrian-born but lives in both Berlin and Manhattan.

In Celebration of the Life of the Illustrious Carol Douglas

Today, I attended Carol Douglas’ funeral.

In her quiet way, she was the reincarnation of Nanny the Maroon both on a personal level and on a professional level.

I learned so much about this heroine from her family, friends, and colleagues.

A week before she passed away, we spoke for an hour, not knowing it was our last conversation.

Rest In Peace, Warrior Queen – your spirit lives on among us as Afrika continues to Struggle.
