My Frat brother and ONYX brother passed away from a heart attack in his office at the University of Georgia on last Monday. He was 44 years young. He was a Graduate Student at Univ. of Georgia in the Fine Arts earning his Doctorate! He was a talented actor and writer. He had a well known play called “Faggot” which he performed during Atlanta’s Black Pride weekend. You can read his interview he had with activist Craig Washington here!
The legendary jazz singer who believed in singing as a political act, died Saturday at the age of 80 in Manhattan. An actress, artist and composer, Lincoln’s music ranged from avant-garde civil rights era recordings to the equally powerful but more introspective recordings of her later years.
