A Legend Lost - R.I.P. Amiri Baraka 

He's gone... He blew up America and will be profoundly missed. Our deepest condolences to his family and all those like us that loved and respected him. A powerful man and mind. A true poet.  It was an honor being able to meet and document this giant. 

Below is a video of a conversation we had with Amiri at the Harlem Book Fair in 2009.  He discusses President Obama and critics who do nothing.  Under that is another video from All Things Harlem, of Baraka's amazing and controersial poem, "Somebody Blew Up America" which he recited at an event marking the 40th anniversary of the Attica Prison rebellion at Riverside Church in Harlem. Enjoy!
