Micheal Massenburg Review from Artvoices Magazine by Greg Pitts

Massenburg: to the 90’s and Beyond

     In the Mother-Fatherland  or Afrikan continent , there was always someone there jalis (griots) that memorized the tribe’s/society geneology.  They were about the business of keeping the collective memory of the group together thru the mutual generations and keeping the group’s madness to a minimum. This practice assumes pre-Columbian roots that involve seeing with your mouth and speaking through your eyes as well and informed  communication that…

But, as we all know, this too shall pass, and I will find a way to my joy in the morning.
