Sad News: Poet, Literary Critic, Performance Artist, Professor Vincent Woodard Passes
And, tomorrow (today), 2/23, I will be reading and remembering my friend and one of my earliest influences, raúlsalinas, "El Tapon" at the Galería de la Raza on 24th Street in the Mission at 7 pm. We will be raising funds for his widow. Please come and hear tributes along with his words by Alejandro Murguía, Tomas Riley, Leticia Hernández, Naomi Quiñonez and others. I hope to be reading the original version of "A Trip Through the Mine Jail" which I read as a young high school student in the Chicano journal Aztlán in 1970.
This blog has always been more for the dead than for me. This light for their's.
