Black Bird Press News & Review: From the Archives: Marvin X--the USA's Rumi

 From the Archives: Marvin X--the USA's Rumi

Last year Marvin X released his magnum opus, Land of My Daughters: Poems 1995-2005 (Black Bird Press), poems that put me in mind of Mawlânâ Jalâl ad-Dîn Muhammad Rûmî. He just published Beyond Religion, toward Spirituality, Essays on Consciousness (Black Bird Press, 2006), and all I can say, folks, is this is the Bible of the Hood and is bound to stir up plenty of opposition -- and maybe even cut through the BS to move towards God.--Bob Holman, Bowery Poetry Club, New York City
