Lorenzo “Logie” Meachum, a Greensboro blues singer, storyteller, writer, teacher and activist, passed away from complications of prostate cancer on Dec. 29 at the age of 66.
A Marine and former professional firefighter, Meachum synthesized creative inspiration from gospel and poetry — Mahalia Jackson and Paul Laurence Dunbar were two of his favorites — and the teachings of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Meachum’s devotion to music, learning and friendships allowed him to cultivate an authentic presence that was equally at home in a barroom blues jam or an interfaith religious service. As a Greensboro native who grew up during the time of segregation, Meachum infused his music and storytelling with a spirituality and a knowledge of local history in a way that commanded moral authority.

Perhaps you should introduce more energy to your own leaps.
