Thandisizwe Chimurenga, December 31, 2022

All these end of year lists mentioning folks who’ve passed on. I knew that more would be added before 2022 got up outta here. But I was hoping it wouldn’t be you.
I met Lawrence Reyes through Michael Novick and KPFK about 20 years or so ago. I used to tease him; I was like “Finally! I met a Puerto Rican in LA!” Lawrence was a proud Boricua. He’d let you know that. He was also a very sweet man. He didn’t have to tell us that part. We could just tell. Fierce fighter. Gentle and committed warrior. I’m so sorry to see you leave us, but I’m so glad you came our way.

May Your Ancestors Welcome You With Open Arms. May Your Loved Ones Be Comforted. May Puerto Rico Be Free.
