ABOUT A SUITE FOR MALCOLM X: THE RESURRECTION TONE POEMS

From the backdrop of a fierce and severe social backlash to the modest social requests and gains of the time, the quest for the assertion of a distinctly positive Black Self-hood did arise. Malcolm X personified the pride, confidence, grace and genius of that time. This work revisits and revives those attitudes of cultural pride that were common to all affairs of Black life then, and indeed central to the world-wide thrust for a common dignity and a universal human respect. The impassioned, 'insightful' musical and lyrical images of this artwork are designed to
empower Our village, at this time and in this day.

This work serves to encourage us to remember; to challenge us to understand more fully, the victories gained. It also attempts to exhort the collective genius to address the challenges ahead with a courageous vigor and a true spiritual insight.
