Nas Pens Emotional Open Letter

A few days ago, Nasir Jones went to his Instagram page to share a video message to his daughter. It’s worth noting the letter was in partnership with alcoholic beverage giant Hennessy.

“Dear @iamdestinyjones — a letter written from the heart and in light of Black perseverance. #NeverStopNeverSettle Society celebrates the perseverance and success of Black entrepreneurs and is a continuation of @HennessyUS long-standing commitment to Black communities.”

In the video, Nas talked directly to Destiny about understanding the power of Black greatness.

“Dear Destiny, I wanted you to see something I never saw, feel something our family had never grasped, Black excellence. Something like the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1921. 40 acres and 35 blocks of black folks running the town. Lawyers, doctors, businesses, all black owned. Imagine that. The vision of Black Wall Street was intentional. And so was its downfall. A hundred years later, a hundred years strong, Black excellence lives on. Wherever black folks dream, the spirit of Greenwood is there. So find them, build with them, dream with them, be your own Black Wall Street. However and wherever you imagine. Your loving father, Nasir Jones.”
