We will be celebrating the life of El Hajj Malik El Shabazz this morning in music and words. 44 years ago, he was killed. Just 39 years old at the time, we miss his words and laughter and insight. We also miss his integrity and upright character. If listeners would like to share thoughts, please call into the station, (347) 237-4610 the first hour. The second portion of the program will be a celebration of Nina Simone's music. She was born today, Feb. 21, 76 years ago. In the San Francisco Bay Area there are a lot of Mardi Gras Parties, so we'll play Carnival music to get you in a festive mood. Robert Hillary King, of the International Coalition to Free the Angola 3 (really two, King's out now),is our special guest this morning. He'll update us on Albert Woodfox, whose birthday is this month. Maybe we'll sing happy birthday. We want to offer our condolences to his family, brother Michael Mable and sister-in-law, Adrienne, for the loss of their daughter a few days ago.
