Provocative, Antagonistic, Passionate, Confrontational In His Words, My Voice, Amiri Baraka
Today I want to bring the words of one of my heroes Amira Baraka. Ancestor Baraka was one of the leaders of the Black Arts Movement that swept across the nation in the mid to late 60s’ and early 70s. He was a poet agitator who flexed his muscle with a mighty, mighty pen of confrontation. From his base in Newark, New Jersey Mr. Baraka laid waste to the white supremacy that was engulfing the nation.
This Work Shook The Entire State Of New Jersey And The Nation in 2001. Amiri Baraka revealed his thoughts on the destruction of America in 2001, the destruction that was in his words 400 years in the making. So, if you aren’t looking for a pollyanna perspective of provoked thought. Go to my blog for this morning’s in his words, my voice, Amiri Baraka’s, Somebody Blew Up America. As I continue to journey on our black history need not be a black mystery.
