Check out my article in Our State!
I spent a lot of time earlier this year researching and writing about the newly conceived African American Music Trail, which commemorates the contributions of African American musicians living in a wide swath of Eastern North Carolina. I had the pleasure of interviewing some fascinating people, including Maceo Parker (who told me some wonderful stories about his days with James Brown) and the members of The Monitors. My story is out this month in Our State magazine. The magazine doesn't put its articles online, but they do have a fabulous video of The Monitors on their Web site. Please check it out!
