Black Panthers – Right On!

I met with Amah-Rose who is doing some research on the Black Panthers. I’ve posted about them previously.
We had a good discussion on them and I lent a couple of books. We discussed the poetry arrests incident and also some of the writers from the late 60s/early 70s who were writing socially relevant poetry.
Sam Greenlee was mentioned a few times, as were LKJ and Gil Scott-Heron. The Panthers antipathy to Amiri Baraka pleased us both.
