We Are Blues People

Our way of life is not something that is going to perish because of a flood.  We are born in hardship and basically by that I mean all New Orleans.  Especially, of course, Black people.are resilient people.  We are Blues people and Blues people never let tragedy have the last word….We’re not going to just fade away because of a crisis.  That’s not in our nature.  That’s not in our character or our history.”  (my transcription)
 
Wynton Marsallis on 9/6 Charlie Rose.
