    AmiriBaraka

    Amiri Baraka ImageI am honored and delighted to be invited by the East Side Arts Alliance through BAYAN-USA to participate in the event  to pay tribute to the late poet activist Amiri Baraka on May 17 in the course of the 14th Annual Malcolm X Jazz Festival.  I  am contributing this statement in his honor.

    I  stand in solidarity with you  in celebrating the outstanding role of Comrade Amiri Baraka as an African-American cultural and political leader, his  passionate condemnation of the violence and injustices inflicted on the African Americans, his revolutionary cause and relentless demand for justice and respect for the people of color and his legacy as a poet, playwright and political organizer.

    Before I met him, I was aware that he first became prominent as a Beat Generation poet.  He became the leading force in the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s and 1970s.  He published in 1963 the book Blues People: Negro  Music in White America, the first major history of black music to be written by an African American.
