I was honored to get to write about my hometown homegrown arts scene for the LA Weekly.

I remember Amiri Baraka as an irascible but brilliant presence at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe and Tribes, back when I used to cover the poetry scene for The Village Voice. His death is a great loss; my condolences to his daughter and my former colleague Lisa; and my ex-neighbor and his ex-wife, Hettie.
