This is a very comprehensive description of who Amiri Baraka is and his influence. If you are into history and the development of the Black Power movement, this book will expand your understanding of the topic. The language usage is eloquent and also user-friendly enough for those of us who may just be learning about Amiri Baraka and the Black Power movement. This is a highly recommended book!
