Born 1940 in New Orleans Louisiana’s seventh ward, I was forced to live the first fourteen years of my young life under the shameful banner of sanctioned segregation and all its negative repercussions. These cruel deeds compelled me to pass my pain on to love ones' and others close to me. In 1953 I was liberated from southern segregation and relocated to Watts California where integration was destroying that viable Black community. Civil Rights was in vogue on the West Coast which gave me the platform that allowed me an area of expression. 'Poetry from New Orleans to Watts' chronicles the cause and effect legal segregation had on me which led to my transition from being a second class Negro into a Black Activist poet.
