Oaktown tribute to Gil Scott Heron, Watts Prophets and Amiri Baraka at Eastside Arts
Oaktown paid tribute to the Greats of Black Arts at the Eastside Arts Center last night. Watts Prophet Hum Di, Nadira Lewis, Marvin X and Ayodele Nzinga performed and spoke about the ancestors. Marvin X said, "Remember this about Amiri Baraka, he was a revolutionary, no matter what else he became. When he was into spiritual things, he was revolutionary; when he was a communist, he remained a revolutionary, so let us remember him and continue making revolution."
