Amiri Baraka    1934-2014

 

 (born Everett Leroy Jones)

 

poet and playwright

of pulsating rage,

whose long illumination

of the black experience in America

was called incandescent

in some quarters

and incendiary in others

 

(...)

 

Mr. Baraka was famous

as one of the major forces

in the Black Arts movement

of the 1960s and ’70s,

which sought to duplicate

in fiction, poetry, drama

and other mediums the aims

of the black power movement

in the political arena.
