Amiri Baraka: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 http://huffpost.com/us/entry/4570912
Amiri Baraka Dead: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 Amiri Baraka, the militant man of letters and tireless agitator whose blues-based, fist-shaking poems, plays and criticism made him a provocative and groundbreaking force in American culture, has died. He was 79. Perhaps no writer of the 1960s and '70s was more radical or polarizing than the former LeRoi Jones, and no one did more to extend the political debates of the civil rights era to the world of the arts.
Amiri Baraka ~ Transformed from Beat Caravan of Allen Ginsberg & Kerouac to Leader of Black Arts Movement; Ally of Black Power, rejecting liberal optimism of early '60s & intensified divide over how & whether black artists should take on social issues. Scorning art for art's sake & pursuit of black-white unity, Barak was part of philosophy calling for teaching Black Art & Black History & producing works bluntly calling for revolution. ~By HILLEL ITALIE 01/09/14 AP http://www.huffingtonpost.com

Poetry is more than just a few words hastily scribbled down. Poetry is as feisty as a woman, as fickle as a cat, and beautiful beyond compare. The words will burn in your mind until they flow from your pen and decorate the page with grace and beauty. Poetry is a place for all of your locked away emotions and heart breaking fears to escape in the most beautiful form. Poetry is a way for your soul to sing the words it has forgotten how to speak
