Watch: Amazing, Powerful Video of Prince Giving Impassioned Speech
Music icon Prince died suddenly on Thursday after being hospitalized a week prior. In addition to selling 100 million records worldwide, winning seven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award, he was also a political activist.
In “Dreamer” (2009) Prince wrote:
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shameâ€¨
Race, race still mattersâ€¨
A race to what, and where we going?â€¨
We in the same boat, but I’m the only one rowingâ€¨
Last year, Prince presented the 2015 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, with this moving preamble:
“Albums still matter. Like books and black lives, albums still matter."
