If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.
When Queen Mother Moore is discussed, she must be held in the same high regard as other freedom fighters in the long struggle of African descendant people against enslavement, terrorism and political disenfranchisement within the jurisdiction of the British colonies and later the United States government. She is due the same respect as many of those whom she called not just peers but friends like Marcus Garvey, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, and Jesse Jackson to name a few.
We will dedicate tonight’s broadcast to informing the public of the legacy of Queen Mother Moore and her work on the issue of reparations and black liberation. We will also continue to inform you about the work of N’COBRA and its many members.
