I would get records by Earl Scruggs... I would tune my banjo down and I'd pick out the songs note by note. Learned how to play that way. I persevered.

Sometimes I pay for it, With the way I walk now, the things I did to my body wasn't supposed to be done. At 48 years old, it is saying, 'Hey, Earl, remember what you did to me?'.
There was all this talk when Obama got elected about how we were living in a postracial world. But we're not.

David Henry Hwang

Martin Luther King, Jr.
