    Amiri Baraka died Thursday after weeks of failing health, a family spokeperson confirmed. He was 79. A playwright, poet, critic and activist, Baraka was one of the most prominent and controversial African American voices in the world of American letters. He was born Everett LeRoi Jones on Oct. 7, 1934, in Newark, N.J. A gifted student, he graduated from high school two years early and went to college at New York University and Howard University. After serving in the Air Force for more than two years, Baraka -- then Jones -- was dishonorably discharged for reading communist texts.

The forum was covered by Venezuelan television, radio, and newspapers. The issues debated on...

    Jerusalem Post (by way of WorldNetDaily.com) ^ | Oct. 1, 2002 | MELISSA RADLER
    New Jersey's poet laureate Amiri Baraka, who wrote a poem blaming Israel for the September 11 attack, is refusing to resign despite calls from the governor, James McGreevey, and charges of "anti-New Jersey, anti-American and anti-Semitic venom" by the local Anti-Defamation League. Last week, McGreevey called on Baraka, who was appointed in August, to resign after the poet laureate read out a work entitled Somebody Blew Up America, at the Dodge Poetry Festival in Waterloo, New Jersey. The poem, which reportedly earned Baraka boos from audience members, prompted the ADL to categorize it as the same kind of anti-Semitic hate...

But one of the buyers,...

    The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has decided to allow controversial University of Colorado-Boulder professor of ethnic studies Ward Churchill to speak March 1 about “Racism Against the American Indian.” UW-Whitewater Chancellor Jack Miller decided Thursday Churchill would be allowed to speak despite an earlier cancellation at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. That cancellation has resulted in national turmoil over various issues, including First Amendment rights and human sympathy. Churchill was not allowed to speak at Hamilton after university officials discovered an essay written in 2001 called “Some People Push Back,” in which Churchill describes the victims of Sept. 11 as “Little...

    ...snip CU officials say roughly 15 percent of Churchill's $92,000-a-year salary - $13,800 - comes from state tax dollars. The remaining 85 percent - $78,200 - comes from tuition. But about 74 percent of that tuition - $57,868 - comes from out-of-state students, CU says. Ward Churchill gets paid plenty by the rich parents of kids from the country's major metropolitan areas who can afford CU's hefty nonresident bills. He owes his professional existence to the very "technicians of empire" he likened to "little Eichmanns."

    AURORA, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado administrators Thursday took the first steps toward a possible dismissal of a professor who likened World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi. Interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano ordered a 30-day review of Ward Churchill's speeches and writings will determine if the professor overstepped his boundaries of academic freedom and whether that should be grounds for dismissal. Also Thursday, the Board of Regents issued an apology for Churchill's remarks at a meeting and voted to support the university's review of Churchill. The raucous meeting drew dozens of protesters who back Churchill; at least two...

I thought it was a national thing. But jeepers creepers (see, I can rhyme, too) we've got one right here in New Jersey, and Amiri Baraka is his name. This "poet," who used to be named Leroi Jones until he became a Muslim, has written something that has caused quite a stir. Here... why not let him tell it, since he's a poet and I'm not:...

    Laureate faces silence of the iambs Gary Younge in New York Tuesday July 8, 2003 The Guardian (UK) New Jersey's legislature has voted to abolish the position of state poet laureate after the governor discovered that he could not sack the current holder of the post. Amiri Baraka, who was appointed by the Republican state governor, James McGreevey, has attracted criticism since reading his poem Somebody Blew Up America at a festival last year. The poem, a series of rhetorical questions, is primarily a diatribe against American racism and imperialism, asking "Who stole Puerto Rico", "Who killed the most Jews"...

    What do you do with a state poet laureate who writes "a poem" about 9-11 so laced with anti-Semitism and other bilious nonsense that it offends the Jewish community and a lot of other folks? In New Jersey, you have to pass a law to get rid of the position - in order to get rid of the poet. The poem was entitled "Someone Blew Up America" and it's likely that Amiri Baraka, a Muslim convert, has conjured up some justification for 9-11. One line from the poem was "Who told 4,000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers to stay...
