Brother Amiri Baraka, a prolific writer, poet, playwright, who was once a poet laureate for the state of New Jersey, is best known for his dedication and devotion to the people. His leadership and activism in this country and in the world had wide and deep influence on arts and culture as well as the quality of life.

Baraka was the architect leading political activism especially in Newark, New Jersey. He engineered historic and dramatic changes in the schools, founding a school himself with his wife, Amina.

Baraka was the guest at Malcolm X Shabazz High School which his movement renamed in 1972. On one occasion he artfully and skillfully delivered his famous poem "Somebody Blew Up America" which awed the students and teachers.

Condolences to the Baraka family and to the community on his passing.
