Afeni Shakur passed away yesterday. Not only was she the mother of Music icon and actor Tupac Shakur, she was also a lifelong political activist. The impact that Afeni had on Tupac is a testament to the power of rebellious parenting. Change comes through teaching the youth to stray from normative and systemic behavior. As different forms of oppression continue to plague the world, we must think about the future. Who is or will be the voice of action for todays youth. Is Kendrick Lamar that? Maybe J. Cole? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below. Peace and eternal gratefulness.
