Donald Wright, author of "The Only Prayer Iâ??ll Ever Pray: Let My People Go" joins me tonight. The book issues a call for blacks in America to critically examine their loyalty and dedication to religion and adapt a lifestyle centered on rational thinking. Mr. Wright believes it is time to break the chains of mental bondage caused by religious dogma. To encourage fellowship and community service among Black non-believers, Mr. Wright and others have decided to have a day of solidarity for Black non-believers.
Speech mostly known for his founding of the conscious hip-hop group Arrested Development. Arrested Development had a big hit with the single Tenneesee, which Speech wrote. The song won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1993. We will discuss why he has become disillusioned with politics in general but which politician gives him some measure of hope for change. Can't talk to a Grammy Winner without checking out some of his new music!
