  1. A man that definetly deserves that title of icon. In one of his interviews,Julian said he hoped that this generation of young people would swallow what he and his friends did with the civil rights movement. With the BLM ,I think that some of them are paying attention to it.

    Its people like Julian who reminds me not to forget where I come from. My condelences to his family.
