This compilation of more than 30 years' worth of elegiac prose and oratory by dramatist, poet, and commentator Amiri Baraka is dedicated to such figures as James Baldwin, Miles Davis, Kimako Baraka, and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as other inspiring African-American, community activists, musicians, artists, and citizens. Always eloquent, heartfelt, and purposeful, this collection exalts and honors great lives, and preserves the contributions of elders as living spirits to encourage and inspire.
