NOTE FROM 12/15/14
I really should start just walking around with a digital recording device when ever I’m with my mother because you never know when she is going to drop historic jewels like this one. I asked her what the mood was re blacklivesmatter in NYC and she jumped into this lyrical narrative of the police and protest-how they killed an 8 year old boy in Queens in ‘73 and the boycotts that followed. I wasn’t prepared, like I say I need to START carrying a digital recorder. So I had to pull out the iPhone ask her to retell the story, not as lyrical (and some nice ambient NYC traffic in background) but still a jewel…and the struggle continues.
