Here is an excerpt from the RS Article:

"At one point, Rolling Stone asked Berry how far the country has come since the days he played segregated venues throughout the South. Berry paused for a moment. "I never thought that a man with the qualities, features, and all that he has, [could] be our President," he said. "My dad said, 'You may not live to see that day,' and I believed him. I thank God that I have." Berry stopped for several seconds while his eyes welled up. "Excuse me," he said."

Rolling Stone – Boots Riley: “Doing What’s Right. Not What’s Legal”

tag

FEB 8, 2012 - Musician activist Boots Riley from the "radical" hip-hop group Coup, has been out in front with the Occupy Oakland movement. RS has a article out about him, here is an excerpt:

“Riley has been an activist since high school, when he spent a summer helping to organize migrant farm workers in central California. He says he was used to seeing twenty-five people show up at demonstrations, and in he past, he’s weighed his activism against what he might accomplish with his music, and generally chosen the music – so many more people could hear the message that way. "But with Occupy, I can’t use that same equation," Riley admits. "What we’re doing here gets a different message out, a stronger message out, to many more people than my music.””
