The BAM News reports the 27 City Tour is ona move from Oakland to San Francisco, Berkeley and Sacramento.
We are in the planning stages for the SF Tour in partnership with the Hunters Point/Bay View YMCA Wellness Program, SF Recovery Theatre and the San Francisco Post.

The Berkeley BAM Tour will likely be in partnership with the Black Repertory Group Theatre which is celebrating its 50th anniversary as well.

Marvin X will be a featured writer at the Sacramento Book Fair, June 5-7. He may be joined by BAM poet Sonia Sanchez and co-editors (John Bracey and James Smethurst) of SOS, The Black Arts Movement Reader. We are in conversation with the planners for a  partnership agreement to present the BAM program at the Book Fair.
