Powerful message! Thank you, Bro. Alarm Clock for posting this video because I never saw this side of Phyllis Hyman until now.
She was so talented--man, I loved this woman's style-- and it was very sad that she suffered from depression and chose to end her life.
I was and still am one of her biggest fans.
"If the community put me out here, I have to bring the community where I am. It's that simple".
I love what I have heard. She stated that she help to generate the kind of money the music industry was making off black artists and decided to take some that money that she has made and take it back to community via establishing a business to hire black folks and some latinos.
"It makes so much since to me, I don't understand why others [successful entertainers] don't do it more often" .
That's one sista I definitely miss. She truly had the right idea. And I especially hate it that her life ended the way it did. I hope one day, we will get the chance to implement the necessary ideas for black prosperity and breed more unity rather than contention in business, and make black prosperity last.
She was beautiful inside and out...RIP Phyllis..
