Chaka Khan Talks With CBS News

Singer talked with Russ Mitchell about what her music has meant to her over the years, and how she participated in the Chicago chapter of the Black Panthers. “They mostly had me, because I was a young chick, I was in high school, so they didn’t bestow really heavy duty stuff on me,” Khan said about her involvement in her younger days as a member of the Black Panthers. “I could sell papers. I started a free breakfast for children program. I did that every morning before I went to school. I’d usually miss my first class. But we were feeding those kids breakfast every morning and just loving it.” Video of the interview at has since been removed.
