Started watching Morgan Freeman on a children’s educational program “The Electric Company” very lanky, sporting Maxi Bells and a perfectly blown out “Fro” Times were more hopeful then, the brothas were the bros and we were happy with each other. Every girl wanted to better Linda Lovelace and there were posters of Bruce Lee in store windows on Colfax Ave. (Denver).
Even my older brother, with a head of “Bozo RED” hair got an afro. “not his look”! I was down with the bruthus and were chill with me. “WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THEN AND NOW?” As a culture we were giddy with our emancipation from the REAL systemic racism of jim Crow and those who would have fellow Americans “Ride the back of the bus”!
