None of our lives matter until the least of us matter
in other words
"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." Matthew 25:40
This song shot out of me like the tears that shot out of my eyes watching what I saw on the TV again and again. And because of the sensitivity around the issue, we did not want people to think that we were high-jacking the cause for any personal gain. From the beginning, my manager Leslie Adams, my co-author and producer Jimmy Jackson and I agreed that we wanted to honor the spirit of the Black Lives Matter movement. To be precise, and partly because of my work teaching in the California Prison System, all proceeds will go to the Equal Justice Initiative part of the movement. You can check them out at https://eji.org/ We chose this foundation after checking it out on Charity Navigator where they have a 100% rating, over 90% of monies raised go to fund their programs, and only 6.2% is spent on administrative overhead (compared to an average of 40%). https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=12756
