Look at how, at age 82, she walks as upright and lithe as a 16 year old. Not a hint of age in her posture or movement -- a testament to all the wisdom she spoke of in this documentary, which was excellent.

My family migrated north in the 60's and I questioned why they would want to come back to NC...I feel a connection between this beautiful Queen and elder and my relatives. There's so much to learn, and the energy just feels right now. Thank you for creating this video.
