Message From Semenya
I began to let a few folks know that, I was (finally) working on a
recording, their response was usually, "Good for you!" Thus,
the title of this project.
am blessed to have the committed support of family and friends in this
effort. Every song reflects a time of love and dreams motivated by a
very special family: my parents, Emetine and Ken Henderson; my brother,
Ken, Jr., and his family: my son, Malik; and the man who keeps the beat
in my heart as well as the drums, Herb King.
am grateful for friends that go "way back" who have encouraged
and often sustained me: Maryann Campbell, Isaih Sanders, Pat Owens,
Onawumi Jean Moss, Ophelia Dargan, Valerie Stephens, DeAma Battle and
Delores Lewis; and my generous mentors: Creston Klingman, Horace C.
Boyer, Acklyn Lynch, Archie Shepp, Charles C. D. Hamilton and the late
musicians featured here always make me feel special. I feel honored for
this opportunity to share their gifts. I am indebted to them all and I
hope they and other listeners enjoy these results of much patience and
