1979 ABBEY LINCOLN INTERVIEW

Gil Noble interviews Abbey Lincoln in 1979. what an amazing woman and artist! she talks about her family, getting started as a singer, her personal philosophies, visiting Africa as a guest of Miriam Makeba and amending her name. she also recites some of her poetry and blesses us with fat nuggets of wisdom. i came across these videos on a very informative blog that i often check out called NEW BLACK MAN. it addresses contemporary Black politics and culture. the Lincoln videos and the blog in general are well worth checking out… (Sorry, but after I posted the original videos the links died so i found the ones below, which are only excerpts…)
