Marvin X was highly honored to read with bassist Henry Grimes at the NYU tribute to AB. Performing with Henry Grimes was like performing with God! Only thing, I was so busy reading my work I could not fully enjoy the mystical music of Henry beside me. But I felt him in my jugular vain
BAM baby 2.0
Let me know if you are down with the 27 City tour AB laid out in this discussion of Drugs, Art and Revolution at Sista's Place in Brooklyn, as they discussed Marvin X's play One Day in the Life, a play about the drugs and the Black liberation movement, including his last encounter with Black Panther Huey P. Newton in a West Oakland Crack house. Marvin X also told of his relationship with Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver during those crack years. Woody King produced the Ed Bullins version of Marvin X's last encounter with Huey and Eldridge, Salaam, Huey Newton, Salaam.
As per AB, It is not about a big venue but even a little store front will do to spead the BAM message of truth and beauty.
We can do the BAM tour in the Black Churches across America, at least they own their own space. So we shall connect with the progressive preachers and spread truth and beauty as AB taught us.
Let us be clear about the united front AB taught us about. We must first unite with each other, yes, the Pan African community, then we can unite with others, progressive whites, Chicanos, Asians, Native Americans, Gays, Lesbians, et al
As per uniting with each other, let us come together with all segments of our society, teachers, preachers, politicians, judges, pimps, hustlers, whores, pimps, dope dealers. Once we come together, the struggle is over, the battle is won. Somebody better say Amen, Ache, Amin, Hotep!
Yes, once the black woman and man unite, alas, for the benefit of the children, and themselves, the struggle is over, freedom has arrived, and so let us unite as AB told us to do, connect the united front on all levels, family, community, nation. And there it is, a united nation of people, connecting with all other ethnic groups who seek sovereginty as well. Ishmael Reed says it was the Black Arts Movement that taught us to seek cultural sovereignty and all other ethnic groups followed suit.
I am not to be fooled by the blood suckers of the poor. Tell me how can America offer the insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan three items if they lay down their arms and pledge allegiance to the constitution of their nations: jobs, housing and education, yet this same offer is not offered to the boyz and girls in the hoods of America. If you can stop the violence in Iraq and Afghanistan, why do you not offer the same solution to the boyz and girls in the hoods in Chicago, NYC, Philly, Los Angeles, Oakland and San Francisco.
You do not offer jobs, housing and education in the hood because you have found a better method of containment, jail and prison, at $50,000 to $60,000 per inmate per year. And let us not speak of juveniles at $250.000.00 per inmate per year. We have visited the juvenile in detention and they have told us that they cannot get out until they can be placed in a family.
Young people fight over his Mythology of Pussy and Dick as if it were gold! They steal it from each other and refuse to give it back! Elders do the same, coast to coast, from Oakland to Philly!

Restorative Justice For Oakland Youth (RJOY) interrupts cycles of violence and incarceration by promoting restorative justice policy and practices in Oakland’s schools and juvenile justice system. With an emphasis on repairing harm and inviting all affected to jointly figure out how to do so, restorative justice gives equal attention to community safety, victim’s needs, and offender accountability and growth. Most recently, at a continuation high school in West Oakland for youth in the juvenile justice system, violence and suspension rates have fallen dramatically, graduation rates and test scores are on the rise, and the school has garnered national attention for its stories of transformation. The Oakland Unified School District adopted restorative justice as official policy in 2010. www.rjoyoakland.org
The Center for Youth Development Through Law (CYDL) provides life changing experiences to high school students from low-income backgroungs through a summer internship and education program, educational mentoring, and after-school program. Building on the students’ passion, intelligence and interest in law and social justice, these programs foster academic and pratical skills, interpersonal competence, self-confidence and high aspirations. More than 92% of the students go on to attend institutions of higher education. After participating in the Center’s summer program, one student remarked, “ It was like I was drowning for so long, and this program finally threw me a rope!” www.youthlawworks.org
The Young Women’s Saturday Program (YWSP), founded in 2011, serves as an enhancement to Alameda County Girls Court. YWSP, also know as The Alameda County Young Women’s Empowerment Program, mainly serves girls in Alameda County who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation and those at-risk for such exploitation who are on probation.

But who knows what demons Mick Jagger's girlfriend struggled with before hanging herself with a black silk scarf on a doorknob inside her posh New York City apartment last month? In hindsight, you'd think someone - Jagger maybe - would have sensed just how despondent Scott had become.
"She didn't just wake up that day and say, 'I'm going to kill myself,'" said Marcella Daniels, an organizer of a free mental-health conference that starts Friday called "Breaking the Silence on Mental Wellness: Real Talk. Real Help. Real Solutions."

personality of the North American Africa. How could he live in two worlds, this conundrum confounded Amiri to the end, and yet we observed on more that one occasion performing in both worlds, the white and the black!. Some people call this ability JAZZ or Black Classic Music. See his book on Black Classical Music, Diggin!, University of Calfornia Press, Berkeley.

Marvin X and Philadelphia/ citizen of the multiverse, Sun Ra, Marvin's master teacher, along with AB, HEM, Malcolm X, --Sun Ra, BAM mystic, musician, poet, band leader, philosopher, linguist, numerologist, Mythologist Supreme. Sun Ra taught Marvin X the need for discipline rather than freedom for his artists and common people. Sun Ra said, "We were born free!. Stop teaching that freedom, justice and equality--don't you see how free and wild they are? Teach discipline, discipline, discipline!"
AB was my brother, teacher, example, model, uncle, father, who allowed m!"e into his metaphysical and practical world of total liberation from any form of oppression. I can say I watched him fight his demons up close and personal, and he observed mine simultaneously. "Boy, you let the elephant out last night! Marvin X, when you get drunk, you can say the damnest things!"
Dr. Nathan Hare, sociologist, clinical psychologist, scholar, publisher, father of Black and Ethnic Studies in America. We love you, Nathan--and Julia too, the female Malcolm X! We love you for sharing 57years of marriage with us, the North American African Nation and the Pan African world.
