CNN Political Commentator Van Jones Remembers Prince As A Friend & Activist Who Was Quietly Bankrolling Social Justice Efforts In Conversation With Don Lemon.

CNN political commentator Van Jones remembers Prince as a dear friend and activist who was quietly bankrolling social justice efforts, in conversation with Don Lemon. Obviously distraught in the wake of Prince’s untimely passing, Jones describes the man behind the music in ways that very few have. From his investment in solar energy to his support of #BlackLivesMatter and the launch of YesWeCode.org, it seems that Prince was as impactful and engaged outside of the studio as he was behind the boards. Check out the footage below to watch the full conversation from CNN Tonight. Read more of Van Jones’ commentary on Prince via cnn.com.
