    A while back I saw a show on tv it was a black man sitting in a wooden chair telling amazing story like peoms about life and oppression. And various other things. It looked like it was filmed in the 70's or early 80's. He was smoking a cigarete. He was great but that is all I know about him. I want to know what his name is. Or how to find out who he is.

    Hello and Welcome zx2bdf !

    Sorry, i don't know who you're refering to, but perhaps another Family Member can help.

    In the meantime, please make yourself at home, because you are.

    Much Love and Peace.

    was it on tape or on film...did anyone else speak....was he in a shirt or a turtleneck...was it color or black and white...was it a commercial station like abc,cbs, etc., or public broadcasting or cable..like keita asked, was he dark or light..what color was his hair...all of this information helps and any other you can think of...do you remember a part of a poem or what was said...

    I think it was Dudley Randle from the Broadside Press. I know the author of a book who made a short documentary of his life. In his interview, he spoke of poetry and oppression. I have the tape. :D
