MLK Jr's Lawyer Speaks At Dilla Day 2015, BBE Releases A Jay Dee Tribute

Clarence B. Jones (born January 8, 1931) is the former personal counsel, advisor, draft speech writer and close friend of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Scholar in Residence at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Institute at Stanford University and author of renowned books on Dr. King's legacy bridges generations of thought by showing the continued relevance and importance of the written word as a means of liberation from oppression.

Watch as Clarence lights up the crowd by encouraging people to express themselves through the art and culture of Hip Hop while highlighting the importance of J Dilla's legacy within it all. By sharing his own thoughts on the power of words to portray a truthful reflection of reality faced by people of America, this torchbearer of Dr. King's legacy demonstrates the timelessness of the American civil rights legacy.

This was Clarence's speech at Dilla Day - Detroit 2015 (a celebration of the legendary DJ J Dilla's Life)

"On February 10th, 2006, the world of Hip Hop lost J Dilla aka Jay Dee. To mark this anniversary, we've created this short sampler from his debut solo album on BBE, featuring a couple of rare acapellas taken from those legendary studio sessions." - BBE Records
