Monday Morning Jam (best with coffee)

Can you think of a better way to spend 3 minutes and 51 second than watching/listening to a rap video filmed in Senegal, sung in French?   I can’t.   The beautiful pink building with a sweeping staircases in the background is the House of Slaves Museum on Gorée Island.    A slave trading port preserved, so that with the power of memory we can prevent history from repeating itself.  In so many ways we are succeeding, in so many others we are failing.  And yet no matter which side is winning, we always have beautiful music, bringing us together.

Grateful for:  youtube and twitter, which brought me the video
