*Baobab Presents...*

Amiri Baraka: Poet, Playwright, Activist who Shaped Revolutionary Politics
and Black Culture

*Friday, March 3rd 7:00 PM*

Baraka was a leading force in the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and
1970s. In 1963 he published "Blues People: Negro Music in White America,"
known as the first major history of black music to be written by an African
American. Baraka continued writing and performing poetry up until his
hospitalization late in 2013, leaving behind a body of work that greatly
influenced a younger generation of hip-hop artists and slam poets. We are
joined by four of Baraka's longtime comrades and friends: Sonia Sanchez, a
renowned writer, poet, playwright and activist; Felipe Luciano, a poet,
activist, journalist and writer who was an original member of the poetry
and musical group The Last Poets; Komozi Woodard, a professor of history at
Sarah Lawrence College and author of "A Nation Within a Nation: Amiri
Baraka and Black Power Politics"; and Larry Hamm, chairman of the People's
Organization for Progress in Newark, New Jersey. Discussion featuring David
Shakes follows.

*Fifty years ago the Black Arts Movement addressed the political climate of
the United States through film, music, poetry, theater, and visual
expression.  In the coming weeks we will explore how this movement,
following the Civil Rights Era, presented a different American perspective.*

*SOMETHING TO DIE FOR: THE LAST POETS*

*Friday, March 10th 7:00 PM*

The Last Poets is the name for several groups of poets and musicians who
arose from the late 1960s African-American civil rights movement's black
nationalist movement. The name is taken from a poem by the South
African revolutionary
poet Keorapetse Kgositsile, who believed he was in the last era of poetry
before guns would take over. The original users of that name were the trio
of Felipe Luciano, Gylan Kain, and David Nelson. However, it is the
versions of the group led by Jalaluddin Mansur Nuriddin and/or Umar Bin
Hassan that have penetrated mass culture to a legendary degree. The Last
Poets have been cited as one of the earliest influences on hip-hop music.
With their politically charged raps, taut rhythms, and dedication to
raising African-American consciousness, the Last Poets laid the groundwork
for the emergence of hip-hop.

*JOHN COLTRANE & HIS CONTRIBUTION TO THE BLACK LIBERATION STRUGGLE*

*Friday, March 17th 7:00 PM*

Nearly 40 years after his death, John Coltrane remains one of the most
important figures in jazz history. Despite a brief recording career that
lasted only from the early '50s to his death in 1967, Coltrane
revolutionized jazz and continues to influence musicians today. And as
perhaps no other artist, Coltrane's music came to articulate the struggle
for Black liberation in the U.S., as his search to push the boundaries of
jazz mirrored the increasingly revolutionary conclusions and aspirations of
many involved in that struggle. Guest presenter, Dr. John Walker

*BLUES AND THE SOULFUL TRUTH*

*Friday, March 24th 7:00 PM*

The Blues is a musical narrative of the daily challenges and struggles of a
people. The same song may take on a different meaning when it is sung in a
different era.
"You can say what you want to, but I won't be goin' to Viet Nam ... " --
Leon Thomas

"I stood in line, down at the County Hall
 I heard a man say, 'We gon' build some new apartments for y'all.'
--an' everybody want to know why I sing the blues!
Well I been around a long time; people, I've really paid some dues..."

                                                         --BB King
Guest presenter, Doug Curry
