Part Two: 30 Years of Teaching and Writing: The Public Career of Marvin X
copyright (c) 1997 by James G. Spady
....Craft is essential to Marvin X's poetry and drama. He knows the possibilities and constraints of the form. And he also knows how to expand. He credits Sun Ra with having helped him to realize the full possibilities of theatre. Marvin read his poetry in San Ra's grand musical energy field and he closely observed Sonny's skillful exploration of our Omniverse and all of its real possibilities. Was int not Sun Ra who told Marvin X that he would be teaching at U.C. Berkeley before it happened?
Marvin X and Sun Ra, both Gemini. Sun Ra was Marvin's mentor and artistic associate.
