Marching

Fifty-one years ago today Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
stood on the steps and told us all he had a dream. A dream of equality, of justice and graveyards, not being filled with the promise of the future. As I said the other day we have made great strides but we must keep marching and moving forward. Police brutality is still rampant

The Hip Hop Nation is under the impression we no longer have anything to March for. The future believes we have conquered all that needs to be conquered. We can’t rest on yesterday’s triumphs. We have to vow to keep marching and move forward or be content to be trampled by those still marching. There are more civil rights battle going on today than there were before. So are we marching moving forward and reaching the summit King dreamed, or are we going to continue to allow ourselves to be trampled and mired in oppression? For this family, there is only one choice, only one answer. WE MARCH.

STILL DREAMING, STILL MARCHING 51 YEARS LATER. PEACE, LOVE, AND STYLE
