Kicking Dirt on Kwanzaa
It doesn’t matter where we are. At each and every occasion, there are

Kwanzaa songs (one of which is mine) and pull out principles and
African proverbs out of baskets. We light candles and recite the names in Swahili, yes, but we also talk about how these principles affect us today, and how we might better implement them in our lives here and now–in English.
Farewell, Dr. Rudolph P. Byrd
I could go on and on about Dr. Byrd and I have, in countless impressions of him that I have performed for friends and strangers, alike. He was a wonderful, most debonair, well-dressed, dignified, “uppity Negro”and a wonderfully-spirited man, par excellence’. He didn’t walk, he glided; and I am serious about that. He had a deep, charming voice and a wonderful laugh. He nearly crushed the bones in my hand when he gave me his first handshake but he was a gentle lion and quite the caring human being. But he most certainly demanded excellence of us as students and as scholars in the world.
