Congresswoman to Marvin X and The Black Arts Movement 50th Anniversary Celebration
FYI, Marvin X received a call today from Congresswoman Barbara Lee's office, who will be sending Marvin X and the Black Arts Movement a commendation for 50 years as artistic freedom fighters. Marvin X was approached at Laney College by a member of her staff. The poet is contemplating what he wants Congresswoman Lee to do as per BAM. The spirit tells Marvin X to tell Congresswoman Lee, "When you become US Ambassador to Cuba, I want you to fly out my family and all BAM members who want to relocate to Cuba."
