  • Hats off and Bravo! to everyone involved in this project!
    It is refreshing to witness the open exhibition of African American culture in all its diversity both here and abroad. Yes we have come a long way, and we still have a long way to go. Like a compass; Master Plan points the Way to bigger and better things (Insha-Allah)
    Music is one of the great gifts bestowed upon us by our Creator. And we must use it and all the other Arts and Sciences to firm up our community presence here on the planet earth and as a continued confirmation of our unique relationship with the Creator and the Creation..
    Hats off to all involved in this project…and prayers to the memory of all those artists and musicians who sacrificed their lives along the way. ‘Peace be upon our beloved ancestors upon whose shoulders we stand.’
