Honors 11: Dutchman and Amiri Baraka

Attached is Dutchman, the 1967 film version, in 6 parts for your viewing pleasure. We will probably watch some of the clips on Thursday. Amiri Baraka contextualizes the play Dutchman for us here. If we get to it, this is the NY Times Obit for Amiri. This Democracy Now! segment focuses on the life and legacy of Baraka.

A few poems by Amiri, read by Amiri:

“Somebody Blew Up America?”

From Def Jam: “Why is We American”

Most of this we will get to Wednesday and Thursday.
