Racism, Music & Love

My first-ever “professionally” published piece of writing was an essay that ran in the February 1993 issue of Scope Magazine, the precursor to the Las Vegas Weekly. I was 16, and although the tone of the article is a bit naive and the style obviously amateurish, the sentiment and subject matter rings true enough that I feel it’s appropriate to share it here, 21 years later (gasp), on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. I’ll let teenage Pj take over now…

    So beautifully said. Hard to believe you wrote this so many years ago.
