A Conversation Between Amiri Baraka & God…

10.22.15 Amiri Baraka Tribute Sonia Tucker

What a wonderful evening celebrating the work of Amiri Baraka! In addition to reciting a poem (How Black Are You)  from my book ” A Life of Love”. I read one of Amiri’s poems entitled “Wise 1”!

If you ever find yourself, some where

lost and surrounded by enemies

who won’t let you speak in your own language

who destroy your statues & instruments, who ban

your omm bomm ba boom

then you are in trouble

deep trouble

they ban your own boom ba boom

you in deep deep

trouble

humph!

probably take you several hundred years to get

out!
