Homage to the Black Arts Movement: A Handbook


Homage to the Black Arts Movement: a handbook pays tribute to the father of that historic literary protest movement, Amiri Baraka (1934-2014), through the writing of Judy Juanita, who encountered him and emulated his work and activism when she was a twenty-year-old student at San Francisco State.

This handbook joins four literary genres which scrutinize the seminal Black Arts Movement [BAM] of the 1960s and 70s, a new voice and visibility for poets, writers, intellectuals, performing and visual artists. She participated as it created venues, publications, productions, opened doors to academia, one of which she went through at SFSU, becoming the youngest member of the nation's first black studies department.
