In America, freedom and justice have been beyond the reach of many of my black ancestors. As black hosts today, we enjoy a small percentage of these rights compared to our white guests but still lack equality. I have no evidence this will change greatly for the future due to the lack of empathy by many people in this society. I do believe we are the authors of our immediate reality and have the power to plant seeds for the future. Remember though, we are not the only folks planting so killers are needed along the journey. Enjoy the show.
