Marvin X replies to Alase Oba Adefunmi Adejuyigbe, King of Yoruba African Village

Nefertiti is in Houston, you met my other daughter, Muhammida, producer of the Black Power Babies Conference in Brooklyn and Philadelphia. We must all come together for the cultural revolution. Amiri talked about the United Front. Let us finish our work that your father ignited along with Amiri and so many others. But you, Alase, must step to the front of the line, especially as per manhood and womanhood training, along with the mighty Yoruba mythology and rituals.

Comment from Maurice Henderson, Philadelphia

I just wanted to know if we are going to be working together for Marvin X's  27 city tour for BAM.  I am asking because i want to use my influence and personal contacts for Black Colleges, African-American Studies Programs, Black Librarians and the Association of Black Culture Centers to book engagements of the BAM tour and also develop a Curriculum, Reading List and Outcome Asset Based Measurements for Historical purposes.
