We live in a culture that has been created for us not that long ago yet we ask no questions. I believe in order to know who we truly are and interpret how we feel about certain situations we must first know where we come from. It's the feel good celebration of who we are despite what has happened to us, we're still here going strong and getting stronger.” Okayplayer has the premier of "Black King Cole".
