Since 2017, there have been 5 symposia and 4 special events with 2 upcoming symposia for 2022!

24 Prince Guests (Joe Blaney, Jerome Benton, Peggy “McCreary” Blum, Ingrid Chavez x 2, André Cymone, Dr. Fink, Cat Glover, Jill Jones, Eric Leeds, Wally Safford, Rhonda Smith, Chuck Zwicky x 2) and 4 Special Guests Cynthia Horner, Nicolay, and Vernon Reid; and 59 speakers (academics, authors, musicians, music journalists, and podcasters)!

I can’t believe that 5 years have passed since my very first Prince event at NYU, #SOTT30BK celebrating 30 years of Sign O’ The Times with the core four (Zaheer Ali, Anil Dash, Miles Marshall Lewis, and Elliott H. Powell). 

These polished solid Prince events would not have been possible without the special guests, speakers, moderators, sponsors, and angels who have generously shared their time and spirit in the name of Prince and continue to do so. Words can not express my gratitude to every single attendee. Also, very special shout outs to Mable Ivory, who got me started on this journey; Krysta Battersby, who has been my righthand woman from the very beginning; Arthur Turnbull for helping me with co-hosting, co-producing, and video editing over the years, as well; Chris Rob for one heck of a concert for #DM40GB30; and to Marco and Reverend for the beautiful graphics.

Sincerely, De Angela L. Duff AKA polished solid
