I don't have too many words to reflect on King Day today. Certainly there are many more eloquent pieces out there. Mavis Staples, though, has lived the Civil Rights Movement. And so the best words today are those that come from our elders and those who are inextricably bound in the Work.
Staples will be releasing yet another album -- I believe her third in five years -- in February. Keep an eye out here for it.
