Let us fill the air with our loving memories of The Jali.  He was such a fantastic and beautiful individual who will be greatly missed and loved by everyone who knew him!  I respected and loved him so much because his role as a Jali which took much dedication and perseverance in order to know many traditional songs without error as well as he had the ability to extemporize West African historical and current events.  And for many of us, he kept Kwanzaa alive in our hearts and minds. His wit and knowledge of African history was formidable and exceeding. The Jali used his vocal and expertise to educate people from all walks of life and ages. I especially remember the Jali’s gentle spirit and loving nature. He will always be remembered as an especially giving person of great character. Come...tell a or two story!!!!
