Fascinating ...iwish I could sit in on that course at NYU....I was watching some videos of the Bar-kays and Rufus from a big out door concert fro 1973 and reading from the comments was so interesting ...people commenting on what they see as a change in the Black community , mostly negative

RUFUS THOMAS - "Breakdown' & 'Funky Chicken' LIVE @ WATTSTAX 1973

Great article. Militant attended this and has posted some insight as well. One question from people was if/when there would be universities actually teaching about Prince. This article is refreshing in that one professor is already teaching on him at NYU and another at Stafford will in the near future. Awesome! biggrin
