New York, NY, November 29, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Amiri Baraka is the author of over 40 books of essays, poems, drama, and music history and criticism, who has recited poetry and lectured on cultural and political issues extensively in the USA, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe. Baraka is renowned as the founder of the Black Arts Movement in Harlem in the 1960s that became, though short-lived, the virtual blueprint for a new American theater aesthetics. The movement and his published and performance work, such as the signature study on African-American music, Blues People (1963) and the play Dutchman (1963) practically seeded “the cultural corollary to black nationalism” of that revolutionary American milieu.
