Back in March, the activist, BET News host, bookstore owner and podcast host, mentioned his father had become seriously ill and was being taken to a nursing home.
My 92 year old father is seriously ill and has been in the hospital for the past 3 weeks. He cannot be visited because of Carona. He is alone. He was just released to his nursing home facility, which was also on lockdown. We just have to keep calling and praying that he's okay. That is hard.

Unfortunately his father died on December 11th.
My father died this morning. 92 years old. I'm grateful that I got to see his face yesterday and make him laugh one last time. Although I have lost much of my joy, I try to find solace in the fact that he has lost all of his pain. Take a rest, dad.

The hardest birthday of my life. Nevertheless, I thank you for everything. Gratitude to all who have sent love, prayers and encouragement. I'm looking forward to this next trip around the sun.
