Ran into our famous OG at Long Beach Airport last weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ @brothercornelwest.... So Iโ€™m sitting at the bar in Long Beach Airport and out of the corner of my eye I see a gentlemen dressed in a black three piece suit reading the news paper. No one else in the airport is reading the paper. Heโ€™s tucked off in the corner absorbing the sun with his legs crossed. I literally lost it. Took off to tell everybody cause I couldnโ€™t believe it myself. He immediately started calling out the names of great who have inspired us, โ€œCurtis Mayfield, Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Duke Ellingtonโ€ and tells us that they are โ€œproud and are smiling right now.โ€ You May have seen him on Joe Rogans podcast, countless interviews, lectures, or read some of his essays. Heโ€™s still cultivating young minds in Boston and has been doing so for over half a century. Blessed to meet you brother. Keep trail blazing!!!
