  1. Thank you for this interview. One of the highlights in my career was sitting in a wonderful conversation for over an hour with Mr. Tatum in his home.
    A very warm man who felt like sharing his life with me on video.
    I will always be grateful to him for his time . Bless you, my friend.

  2. What a great interview! Bill Tatum is brilliancy and inspiration combined. He has made great contributions to society. The Amsterdam news has been the voice and representation of the Black community for more than a century. May he continue to R.I.P.
