Remembering Amiri Baraka….

In reflection of Amiri’s work, AfroMadu had the opportunity in 2012 to meet him at The Mumia Abu Jamal’s 40th anniversary rally in Philadelphia. This short video is a piece of Amiri’s powerful poem about America through a political lens. Although the quality is a little poor, Amiri’s message is still powerful. And even though we had the nose bleed seats, we were still able to feel the emotion in the room stemming from Amiri’s presence.  AfroMadu remembers Baraka with this video clip. Check it out!
