Amiri Baraka (1934-2014)

We are honored to be one of one of the places where Amiri Baraka regularly shared his brilliance. He was a force for change, and to hear him perform, to be present with him, was to be changed. Our hearts go out to his family and friends during these hard days ahead.amiribaraka_0112
