This is a personal salute to a real American hero, my mentor and spiritual father Reverend Dr. Cecil "Chip" Murray, who is known as being the iconic pastor of First A.M.E. Church in Los Angeles, and the individual who called for and inspired lasting peace in South Central in the days immediately following the Rodney King Riots of 1992.  Now at the USC School of Religion, Dr. Murray was an early Ph.D in Theology from the African-American community, an iconic leader in the broader religious community, a Los Angeles leader for 5MK (5 MILLION KIDS), the Operation HOPE initiative to break the back of the high school dropout generation in America, and the only wise man I have ever met in this world.

Enjoy the video, and if you ever have the opportunity, meet the man!  Your life will never be the same.
