    Wondering if I can do volunteerism that day as Sonia Sanchez is a dear friend of the family. Met her as a child half a century ago. She and my grandmother, Queen Mother Audley Moore, were sisters in the struggle for a bill that went to Congress in the 1970′s, titled “Reparations” for descendants of African and Pan African People who perished in the diaspora.
