RIP: Sekou Sundiata, 1948–2007

On the morning of July 18, 2007 we lost another great Black man: Sekou Sundiata.

It’s sad but until I heard about his passing, I never really delved that deep into his poetry. Watch his Def Poetry Jam performance – so fierce!

Vernon Reid wrote a great tribute in the Village Voice this week – read it here.

Just doing my part in adding some more web content with Sekou’s name/photo in the effort to keep his legacy alive.

People with his spirit, mentality and courage don’t come around too often.
