Video: Marvin X reads Driving Miss Libby--the wild crazy ride of the Marvin X Experience!

 "Marvin X is Plato teaching on the streets of Oakland."
--Ishmael Reed
"He's the USA's Rumi! The wisdom of Saadi, the ecstasy of Hafiz."--Bob Holman

Fantastic! As always your writings are both sacred and profane. Holy and unrighteous. Like life, like truth, like you!--Fahizah Alim, writer emeritus, Sacramento Bee

Awesome, brilliant and hilarious. And on point.--P-Ra, Richard Moore,Berkeley

Deep! Deep! James Brown Deep! --Suzette Celeste, Oakland

Funny funny funny. The language is vintage Marvin X!--Bernard Stringer, ATL

It made me laugh just when I needed a laugh.--Quitta Kirk, Berkeley

This gave me all of the feels (and giggles)...and I AM coming for her.
So much respect Baba Marvin.

--Cat Brooks. Oakland

Your sexist language is offensive and as a father of a 6 year old girl, I hope nobody ever calls her a pussycat or bitch simply because she's a woman.
--Orson Aguilar, Oakland
His language is so strong it will knock the socks off old ladies!
--Wanda Sabir, SF New Bayview Newspaper

He is sexist as all get out, in the way that is common for men of his generation and his radicalism, but he is refreshingly aware of that and working on it. It's just that the work isn't done and if that offends you to see a man in process and still using the 'b' word, look out.
--Dr. Mohja Kahf, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville


Your script put me at a lost for words, but if you let me, I will direct it!--Dr. Ayodele Nzinga

Marvin X has been ignored and silenced, like Malcolm X would be ignored and silenced if he had lived on into the Now. He's one of the most extraordinary, exciting black intellectuals living today --Rudolph Lewis, Chickenbones.com

"WHEN YOU LISTEN TO TUPAC SHAKUR, E-40, TOO SHORT, MASTER P OR ANY OTHER RAPPERS OUT OF THE BAY AREA OF CALI, THINK OF MARVIN X. HE LAID THE FOUNDATION AND GAVE US THE LANGUAGE TO EXPRESS BLACK MALE URBAN EXPERIENCES IN A LYRICAL WAY!"

--JAMES G. SPADY, PHILADELPHIA NEW OBSERVER NEWSPAPER
