CFS: Edited Volume - Literary And Cultural Aesthetics In The 21st Century: Revisiting Amiri Baraka’s Legacy

Imamu Amiri Baraka, formerly known as LeRoi Jones and the co-founder of the Black Arts Movement (BAM), passed away in 2014. The duty of remembering is a unique opportunity to assess Baraka’s legacy, the movement, and the direction taken by African American literature. Baraka's poetic productions and general body of work have garnered mixed appreciation. According to David L. Smith, “Some observers have regarded him as confused and unstable, others have hailed him as the apostle of the Black Aesthetic or as the Father of Contemporary Black Poetry”.
