I did not know Steve Gilliard when I wrote it, but this song is very much for and very much about Mr. Steve Gilliard.
I first encountered Steve Gilliard's writing about 1 year ago. The force of Steve's writing struck me as that of Darcus Howe and Linton Kwesi Johnson. Strong, outspoken, sharply opinionated and severely well studied black men. I miss Steve Gilliard deeply.
