In honor of Black History Month: books I read in '68 and '69:

'Soul on Ice' by Eldridge Cleaver.
'The Autobiography of Malcolm X'
The poems and drama of LeRoi Jones, later named Amiri Bakara.
Even 'Pimp' by Iceburg Slim (Robert Beck)
I sat in the front row with the BSU when Ron Maulana Karenga ( founder of Kwanzaa) spoke
at my college. I held the seats so they could make an entrance in their dashikis.
I learned a lot more from those authors and those friends than I did in class
that year. Still learning....
