We were students at Howard University and even some years afterward — we spent so much time at 808 South 10th Street, that was the only other address on the planet I will never forget besides my own Grandmothers house in South Side Queens. Ras’s Mom and Dad were family to me — glad to see me, and I them — always making sure that I was on the right path and sure to send greetings back to my Dad. Over the years, my visits became fewer, but whenever I did see them both — it was like home again. Strength, Love and Light to the Baraka Family.
