Remembering Amiri Baraka on Democracy Now

Last week, when I heard Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report reference the tribute and roundtable discussion about Amiri Baraka on Democracy Now as “the best episode of that program ever” and “maybe the most enriching, informative television that I have ever seen,” I knew that I had to catch it.

I gained a great deal of perspective on Baraka’s life and the era from this episode. The roundtable discussion features POP Chairman Larry Hamm, Sonia Sanchez, Felipe Luciano, and Komozi Woodard. I strongly encourage you to watch it, too.
