"THE LIFE OF RILEY"
“The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.” ~ B. B. King
February is African-American History Month and this is my contribution to IndigoStudios's African-American History challenge today with the theme of "At the Crossroads of Freedom and Equality."
B.B. King was born Riley B. King and is an African-American blues guitarist and singer-songwriter who is quite endearing to all nationalities and age groups of people. Additional information is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B.B._King
Believe it or not, but when I read her invite on 2/10/2013 to participate, this photo had already been uploaded to this gallery for my post for today - proof by the date (see below) it was taken. Although I am not a fan of blues music, I like B.B. King. I first met him when he visited and performed at my university's alma mater years ago; and to this day, he has continued the tradition.
Thanks for taking time to peruse and comment on my photos; SmugMuggers rock!!!!
Have an "I hear the music" kind of day, my friends.
