12 Quotes From The Late Amiri Baraka/ the poet novelist and activist

Poet, playwright, novelist, activist, and former New Jersey poet laureate, Amiri Baraka, died Thursday at the age of 79.

In 1990, in a preface to “The LeRoi Jones/Amari Baraka Reader”, Baraka wrote: “My writing reflects my own growth and expansion, and at the same time the society in which I have existed throughout this longish confrontation. Whether it is politics, music, literature, or the origins of language, there is a historical and time/place/condition reference that will always try to explain exactly why I was saying both how and for what.”
