Stanley Crouch. His absence from the scene will be huge. I'll miss his writing on music the most. Met him a number of times, (he never seemed to remember me). My best story about him is short. At a fab book party for Albert Murray. Wynton Marsalis, et all performed. I'm standing alone when Crouch steps to me and says, "You Ethiopian or something?" Me: "No. I'm from Knoxville, TN." He promptly walks away. Perfect.

Writer critic Stanley Crouch has transcended. If you aren't familiar with his work and his legend. lol. Now is a great time to check him out and/or revisit his work. He was at his best in my opinion, when he wrote about music.

Anna Wintour admits to ‘hurtful and intolerant’ behavior at Vogue

Let's see you walk the walk: “It can’t be easy to be a Black employee at Vogue, and there are too few of you. I know that it is not enough to say we will do better, but we will — and please know that I value your voices and responses as we move forward. I am listening and would like to hear your feedback and your advice if you would like to share either."--Anna Wintour

“I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators.”
