Everybody loved Curtis Mayfield.  He was one of a kind.  Here’s something that will make you feel good.  It’s a Soul Train line to Curtis Mayfield’s “Get Down.”  Check it out.

But before you watch, here’s the basics on Mayfield, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Curtis Lee Mayfield (June 3, 1942 – December 26, 1999) was an American soulR&B, and funk singer, songwriter, and record producer. He achieved mainstream solo success and recognition from being involved with The Impressions during the Civil Rights Movement of the late 50’s and 1960s. Mayfield is also known for his efforts in writing the soundtrack to theblaxploitation film Super Fly which was considered unusual as a soundtrack for a blaxploitation film, as its songs contained themes focusing more on the social problems of impoverished African American urban areas during the time. Mayfield is regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music.[1][2] He was also a multi-instrumentalistwho played the guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and drums. Mayfield is a winner of both the Grammy Legend Award (in 1994) and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (in 1995), and he was a double inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted as a member of The Impressions into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and again in 1999 as a solo artist. He is also a two-time Grammy Hall of Fame inductee.

  3. Man…..I can watch this all day!…..We are so cool as a people….no matter what was going on, we could still take time and forget about for a little while and have some good fun!!!! This did make me happy….not as much as the Solange/Jayz fight….but this is good…..

  4. This is so lovely to see, it also got me wondering, how more beautiful the Black Woman is when she loves herself for the we she is and wears her Afro with pride, I can't help but think if Black women ditched the weave and really got back to loving themselves like this video, you would have every man from USA to Timbuktu chasing after them, because Black Women are truly beautiful but seem to have lost their way.

  5. Wow! So beautiful! The music is better, the dance is better, and the people look better!

  6. We are also noticing that traditional medical doctors are also recognizing the increased interest in holistic healing and are lastly starting to incorporate these healing strategies into their practice to maintain up with the current trends. You will find many ways to obtain a construction job interview, but some are a lot more effective than other people.

  7. Cheers for this great. I am wondering in case you were planning of writing related posts to this 1. .Keep up the outstanding articles!

  11. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help
