"God has been replaced, as he has all over the West, with respectability and air conditioning." Amiri Baraka LeRoi Jones ( Amiri Baraka ) is a poet, writer, political activist and teacher. He was born in 1934, in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from Howard University in 1953, and published his first major book of poetry, Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note , in 1961. He founded Totem Press in 1958, which first published works by Kerouac, Ginsberg and other lesser-known writers of the time period. Jones was also an accomplished playwright. His play Dutchman opened off-broadway and received critical acclaim. In Dutchman , an encounter between a white woman and a black intellectual exposes the suppressed anger and hostility of American blacks toward the dominant white culture. In 1965, he founded the Black Arts Repertory Theatre in Harlem, and in 1968, he founded the Black Community Development and Defense Organization, a Muslim group committed to affirming black culture and to gaining political power for blacks. In 1968, LeRoi Jones changed his name to

LeRoi Jones
LeRoi Jones was a prominent African American figure throughout the various art forms and communities of New York City. He is difficult to place in any one particular place/location since he is mentioned in various neighborhoods depending upon what point in his life we examine (the Living Theater, Cherry Lane Theater, the New School, Gas Light Cafe, Eight Street Bookstore). I found the following site while searching the web . I found this site of particular importance and significance since it conceptualizes Jones/Baraka in a timeline autobiography. It traces his days from a Beat to a Black Nationalist to a Third World Marxist. At the end is a discussion of his play "Dutchman" which we viewed in class last week. It elaborates on Banes theory for motivations and themes within the play and how it correlated to his life and many African Americans of his time. Lynette Erbe I had never heard of LeRoi Jones prior to this semester, but now that I have, his name has popped a couple of times outside of this class. So, I thought I would add a bit to what Lynette brought up about his involvement in the Black Nationalist movement. For a history class I am taking this semester, we are reading a book entitled

Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones): The Man, the Poet, and the Myth
  • Genre(s): African-American, Beats
  • Period: 1960s to the present
  • Lines: (from "Western Front")
    My intentions are colors. I'm filled with
    color, every tint you think of lends to mine
    my mind is full of color, hard muscle streaks,
    or soft glow round exactness registration. All earth
    heaven things, hell things, in colors circulate a wild blood train, turn litmus like a bible coat, ...
  • Quote: My writing reflects my own growth and expansion, and at the same time the society in which I have existed throughout this confrontation. Whether it is politics, music, literature, or the origins of language, there is always a historical and time/place/condition reference that will always try to explain why I was saying both how and for what (Baraka Reader, Preface). Poet, essayist, jazz critic, social critic, dramatist, orator, fiction writer and activist writer all describe the enormous accomplishments of Amiri Baraka, formerly LeRoi Jones, but none of these come close to describing the art and, more importantly, the life of Baraka. Baraka's poetry represents the evolution of a mind that has gone through radical changes in ideological influences, but even in these changes there has been a consistent linear development of discovery and rebellion. It is this development that makes Baraka the person, poet, and activist that he is. [ Click to Order the LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka Reader (soft $) ]

    (For Kellie Jones, Born 16 May 1959) Lately, I've become accustomed to the way
    The ground opens up and envelops me
    Each time I go out to walk the dog.
    Or the broad-edged silly music the win
    Makes when I run for the bus... Things have come to that. And now, each night I count the stars,
    And each night I get the same number.
    And when they will not come to be counted,
    I count the holes they leave. Nobody sings anymore. And then last night, I tiptoed up
    To my daughter's room and heard her
    Talking to someone, and when I opened The door, there was no one there... Only she on her knees, peeking into Her own clasped hands. [thanks to] Ancient Music The main thing to be against is Death!

Page 436, table 731. In Savage Inequalities , Jonathan Kozol writes, "Average expenditures per pupil in the city of New York in 1987 were some $5,500." In the highest spending suburbs of New York funding levels rose above $11,000, with the highest districts in the state around $15,000." The New York city school districts he refers to are predominately Black and Latino. This phenomenon is by no means restricted to New York city. For example, in 1989 in Chicago, the average spending per pupil was again $5,500, but in northern suburbs (which are largely white) the average was between $8,500 and $9,000.

    Blues people; Negro music in white America. by LeRoi Jones About this title: First published in 1963 as textual commentary on the music emanating from radios all over America, this guide concerns the avant-garde "black music" that deeply influenced white culture during the 1960s. The poet/activist Amiri Imamu Baraka, born LeRoi Jones, has concerned himself with the music scene for decades, and wonders why there have been so few African-American music critics writing about jazz and blues. Note: This is a general synopsis. Each listing is further described below.
