“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious
is to be in a rage almost all the time.” – James Baldwin

…given the unrest and protest post the Ferguson 2014 – the Will Who Won’t documentary  started in 2006/7 is even more relevant and insightful now with the present protest bordering on riots – every time i would meet and record Will i would get the feeling white people don’t have a clue what volcano, earthquake landmine they are sitting on and when it explodes it will implode at the same time and i realized the doc won’t resonate with people and the media until something like this post Ferguson event, they won’t listen, like the frog in slow boiling water, until its too late but here is a taste in quote from Will, from the inside out and beyond – “slavery is alive and well in America…. the problem with black folks is not that they are hooked on white stuff (cocaine), they are hooked on whitey”- what is happening in Ferguson and around the country is deeper then white folks can imagine according to my understanding of Will Who Won’t – i gave him that name because he won’t give up – Will articulates in his way things i, a native new yorker never imagined or experienced or could experience – there is more to this then meets the eye – please listen to the audio – as Will won’t let me take his photo – because he is after all a revolutionary who comes to a white man for help as he says

PRE-Preface: Food for thought/imagination – Will Who Won’t – a story of a black homeless revolutionary and veteran named Will, who won’t give up; there is a little bit of Will Who Won’t in all of us too. It might appear to some to be little strange for a white American man to do a documentary on a black revolutionary who is also homeless and a veteran: but, keep an open mind, maybe I listen with a different ear – I once saw a jewish issue documentary by an Indian and American born jew and was impressed at the story they told was not the story a jew would tell for sure and maybe there just might be more to this then meets the eye – maybe, with your help, Wlll can tell Will Who Won’t story – and with that be forewarned, Will is an equal opportunity insulter so be prepared to be insulted if not out right offended and charmed at the same time – he has his “beliefs” his “truths” – Before you react and judge WIll… walk in his shoes, listen to what he is saying and even more to what he is not saying. People who knew Will in Los Angeles called him, the Barrel Inspector, because he has looked down the barrel of more guns pointed at him then most can imagine: also keep in mind that Will is a man who has nothing to lose and somewhere in there is something to say about what he is saying and why too, and maybe in all of this there is some little truths and nugget to learn about the world as he and many black people live and perceive it! — Will calls himself a New Age Warrior and is on a mission to re-invent America and the world too

quote excerpted from Motherless CHild and Train Songs and little bit of how we met and too – Will Who Won’t, quote excerpted “…for some reason these young people have little to no passion. ok, I guess that’s why they want to fuck everything. ok.. they can’t feel… its like they gotta metal coating or cover of something on that won’t allow reality to pass through it – i mean, like what they do is shallow, empty, devoid of anything substantive….” you can hear more of WIll and my conversations below and you can reach me or Will geo@WillWhoWont.com as well as to purchase Will Who Won’t Train Songs (downloadable MP3) or to support my or Will work please contact me – Please check out other Docs in Progress Giving Birth To Myself – a Harlem Midwife Story http://GivingBirthToMyself.comFran Dent – I can do anything but failAndy Dixon – ex-con with convictions
