Join the BAM army for the cultural revolution, 2015

We urge you to enlist in the army of the Bay Area-wide Black Arts Movement cultural revolution/celebration, 2015, in honor of Amina and Amiri Baraka. Amiri Baraka was the key mover and shaker of BAM, along with a host of co-workers, including his wife Amina Baraka and Askia Toure, Larry Neal, Sun Ra, Sonia Sanchez, Marvin X, Nikki Giovanni, Haki Madhubuti, Kalamu Ya Salaam, Woody King, Last Poets, Barbara Ann Teer, et al. Although bi-coastal, Marvin X continues to do most of his cultural work in the Bay Area.

To join the BAM army for the cultural revolution, email your resume and pic with a one page biography to We shall do this BAM fest with or without grant funding. In fact, we should do it in the BAM tradition of DO FOR SELF, i.e., most of the BAM institutions were independent and self reliant, only the more Miller Lite BAM institutions were grant funded. We ain't traveling Miller Lite up in here!--Marvin X
