“I remember spotting Chuck Berry, sitting alone near a buffet table at the after-party for the American Music Awards, and thinking Michael might like a picture with him. I wanted to show an intergenerational kinship, a grandfather and grandson image, and I asked Chuck if Michael could sit on his lap. Chuck agreed, Michael came over for the shot, and without any prompting, their hands met in a Black Power handshake… And in this handshake, perhaps he is passing some of his strength and determination to the next generation, to Michael”. - Todd Gray, Michael Jackson: Before He Was King
