I was watching TV the other night and saw a program where Lionel was searching for his family ancestry. This was a very moving experience for him and me. I would like to think that as the greatest freedom seeking nation, we as a people are righting the racial inequalities of the past. I have to ask the question why has this taken so long. Lionel’s, music is heart felt. He has been given a great musical gift which will bind us together as we all move forward to a greater future. Thank-you.
