TWD Condolences For 1/9/14: A New Jersian Poet Goes "Home"

Major rest in heaven for the wonderful poet and underrated activist that is Amiri Baraka, who has passed today at age 79.

Here is some of his best work and notable TV appearances down below. It is a real shame that he went so quite to the general popular for so many years.

And look at the interview he did with Connie Chung where he was on to talk about his controversial poem on 9/11:

More to come at TWD, with blessings to the Baraka family for sure and thensome.
