Prince’s sudden death at 57 had left many of us reeling. As the tributes come pouring in, one that caught my eye was from #YesWeCode and Van Jones:
“We honor #Prince, the inspiration behind #YesWeCode. Prince’s commitment to ensuring young people of color have a voice in the tech sector continues to impact the lives of future visionaries creating the tech of tomorrow.”

There are quite a few petitions circulating to honour Prince by naming buildings and airports after him. One that is gaining momentum is for an honour that should have been awarded to him ages ago, a star on the Walk of Fame. Sign here to demand that he be honoured with a star on the Walk of Fame posthumously.
And of course there’s no better way to celebrate an artist’s life than by sharing, listening to and danciing to their work. What’s your favourite Prince song? Post your answers below!
