If you gave me an opportunity to go to Africa, would I be wanting to go over there just to get to know the king and the queen, and get to know where the diamonds and the gold is?1 No, I would be wanting somebody to take me into Africa as a gift, as a gift to knowledge, to show the king and queen how I could be of some service, of some educated manner. That’s the reason why I did the piece called “Six Space Shuttles and 144,000 Elephants.”
