When Douglass first comes to live with the Aulds, Mrs. Auld begins to teach him the alphabet and some small words. When Hugh Auld realizes what she is doing, he orders her to stop immediately, saying that education ruins slaves, making them unmanageable and unhappy. Before this moment, Douglass has known intuitively that slavery is evil, but has been mystified by the logic of how slavery works. Hugh Auld’s pronouncement that education ruins slaves enlightens Douglass. He suddenly understands that slave owners gain and keep power over slaves by depriving slaves of education and ideas.

Here is a song called "Let it Go" from his mixtape "Those Who Wait"

I keep these two books with me everywhere I go. Two books that could change your life.

When I started doing what I love, I started living the life I love.
This is the one quote that stood out to me from the BET awards. I don’t know very much about Big Sean’s music, but this is truth.
