Wisdom of Plato Negro at SF Theatre Festival, Sunday, August 8, 2010


Accompanied by Rashidah Sabreen, guitar, vocals, Raynetta Rayzetta and Linda Johnson, choreographers/dancers, and Paradise, poet/reader


The Wisdom of Plato Negro, Parables/fables is
at once both gutsy and crude, vulgar and righteous, bodacious
and common. Marvin X tares at your heart while piling crap
on your
head. He makes you want to kiss somebody, or kill him. One
comes from this encounter with the surrealism that is both art and
reality, imagery
and observations. His parables tell stories meant to both inform and
reform, while his fables are remarkable in their almost real, yet
imaginary,
yet real paradoxes that confront the reader, and his musings makes one
wonder
if it is live or Memorex.
Marvin X gives us his blood, sweat and tears
–each
page gives us a little more of himself. Thanks my brother for the
journey, the insanity, the righteousness, the vulgarity, and the taste
of soul.

--Dr. Rodney D. Coates




Marvin X is Plato teaching on the streets of Oakland.
--Ishmael Reed

He's the USA's Rumi! He’s got the humor of Pietri, the politics of Baraka, and the spiritual Muslim grounding that is totally new in English –- the ecstasy of Hafiz, the wisdom of Saadi.
--Bob Holman,
Bowery Poetry Club, New York City


Is Marvin X a parable or fable? We doubt a Marvin X exists. We double doubt there is a Plato Negro.
--Amiri Baraka
