For All Points-Of-The-View.
Now that the Oakland City Council has approved the Black Arts Movement Business District, the time has come for the Black Arts Movement Poets Choir and Arkestra to hit the road and complete the 27 City Tour envisioned by ancestor Amiri Baraka. The Black Arts Movement is the most radical artistic and literary movement in American history, sister of the Black Power Movement. Our mission is to spread radical consciousness throughout the land. We thank the citizens of Oakland for establishing the first Black Arts Movement Business District in America.
We would like the BAM 27 City Tour to end in Cuba with a grand concert featuring the BAM Poets Choir & Arkestra, Francisco Mora's Afro Horn, Sun Ra Arkestra and David Murray. We need sponsors, promoters, booking agents to make this happen. If you or your city has a venue for the 27 City US tour, please contact Marvin X: 510-200-4164.
