Marvin X is a poet/playwright/essayist  in the true spirit of the Black Arts Movement or  BAM. His most well-known BAM play, entitled Flowers for the Trashman, deals with generational difficulties and the crisis of the Black intellectual as he deals with education in a white-controlled culture. Marvin X's other works include, The Black Bird, The Trial, Resurrection of the Dead and In the Name of Love.

He had the longest running African American drama in the San Francisco Bay area and Northern California, ONE DAY IN THE LIFE, a tragi-comedy of addiction and recovery. The play has a scene of his last encounter with Black Panther Huey Newton in a West Oakland crack house. He is the founder and director of RECOVERY THEATRE.
