Rest In Peace Afeni Shakur

Afeni Shakur, whose government name was Alice Faye Williams, born January 10, 1947, has died – May 2, 2016. Although her journey may have been rough at times, she produced the late rapper, Tupac Shakur, which proves that if you can’t change the world, you can produce the person who will! She was an American music, businesswoman, philanthropist, political activist and a Black Panther.

I lost a son, so I know the pain of such a tragedy. Although hard, she did her job as a mother continuing the unconditional love of her son fighting for his rights until her death. More profoundly, she fought the power of the US government acting as her own criminal defense attorney after being accused of taking part in numerous bombings as a member of the Panthers and won her freedom.

Much love and respect to this phenomenal women. May you rest with the ancestors and I hope you are with your son again. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
