Thanks to Sam’s work, we are sitting in a little privileged place. As Sam walked, Aretha was able to run, Aretha gave Whitney’s wings, and Whitney, as you know, our ancestors who came before us because they were doing their best. I can’t judge some of them. As you know, Sam was naturally dressed in hair. It was radical. He cut the conch from his hair. There was no process in my hair.As one of the greatest stars of his time, he gave Brother the confidence to wear that little thing and that rill. [gestures to his head] Natural thing. He played his part because it wasn’t done in his time. But yes, it afflicts me to think that there was a room in America that wouldn’t have opened their arms to Sam Cooke and he wouldn’t have been accepted. You know for me,’The room that didn’t accept him wasn’t worth him because he’s my man. But he accepted at Copa and knew it was money. It will open up the opportunity to make the fabrics I need to make around this country, and his talent deserves it. And he didn’t want to be driven into one section of the business with all the talent he brought to the table.
