MARX MAN Baraka’s fiction takes aim at race, capitalism and politics.

The potent, political Amiri Baraka passed away in January, and his death is an ache that won't fade anytime soon. Poets and writers gather this afternoon to read work by and about Baraka; those paying tribute include Cornelius Eady, Thomas Sayers Ellis, Anne Waldman, Bob Holman and many more.
