BAM Artistic Freedom Fighter Marvin X. Jackmon/El Muhajir: family, associates and friends


Saturday, October 28, 2017

Coming soon: a video documentary on the life and times of Black Arts Movement Artistic Freedom Fighter Marvin X/El Muhajir--the last revolutionary of an era, the 60s; the man who never came in from the cold.

"...It is gratifying in an era of the sellout, faint hearted and fallen, to see that Marvin X was one black man who met the white man in the center of the ring and walked with him to the corners of psycho-social inequity, grappling with him through the bowels of the earth, yet remained one black man the white man couldn't get!"

--Dr. Nathan Hare, Introduction to Somethin' Proper, the life and times of a North American African Poet, the autobiography of Marvin X, Black Bird Press, Berkeley, 1998.
