Amiri Baraka, Polarizing Poet and Playwright, Dies at 79


"Everett Leroy Jones was born in Newark on Oct. 7, 1934. His father, Coyette, was a postal supervisor; his mother, the former Anna Russ, was a social worker. Growing up, young Leroy, as he was known, took piano, drum and trumpet lessons — a background that would inform his later work as a jazz writer — and also studied drawing and painting."

Thanks for posting this, Libra. Several shows on Pacifica radio aired tributes to him and played him reciting his poetry and various interviews. I'm sorry I didn't know more about him when he was alive,

Libra,

I appreciate your posting this. I went to the article and read the whole thing. I bought "The Dead Lecturer" in 1968, believe it or not. I was in downtown L.A. one weekend. Those were interesting times before Uncle Sam got a hold of me. Zak
