Remembering Afeni Shakur: Our Own Black Shining Princess, Part Two of Two

The Afeni Shakur Memorial Ceremony commenced at 4:15pm on Saturday, June 18, 2016 with an African drum procession by the Songhai Djeli. Rev. Dr. Karen S. Daughtry, the Senior Pastor at The House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn, NY, welcomed the guests. She remembered when Afeni brought her sister, Gloria, and her two children, Tupac and Sekyiwa, to the church for membership. I appointed Dr. Daughtry as the Big Sister to Gloria; and, Minister Peggy Washington as Afeni's Big Sister. By now, the sanctuary downstairs (which accommodates 350 people) was filled. People were going upstairs to the balcony.
