Shout Out To Haki R. Madhubuti — Poet

The day I became a poet

Reading poetry, back in the day, Haki Madhubuti, standing next to me

Haki R. Madhubuti, the poet, is 80 years today. February 23. He shares a birthday with the intellectual of all intellectuals, W.E.B. DuBois, and my oldest and first born child, Adanya.

That alone makes the day just that much more special to me. My child, and then two Black men of great historical significance.
