Freedom Rich

Sometimes you just have to have the audacity to speak the truth.

That’s what I’m learning from my man Little Richard, when at the 1988 Grammy’s he playfully (and some think, rightfully) announced himself as the winner during the nominee announcements. I can almost sense the bit of urgency, disappointment, and frustration in his voice. Can you? Little Richard was finally awarded a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1993. I think he absolutely deserved it.
