More > Anthology of a Watts Prophet -1960 - 2008 is 331 pages. 'All by Myself Poetry' is an optimistic view of that hopelessness. ‘Poetry from New Orleans to Watts’ began to take another turn, that’s when I began questioning my second class citizenship in a land of plenty, which began my transition from a second class Negro into a Black Activist Poet. 'The Turbulent 60's is my third and most controversial of the three poetry books. It's about the racism, exploitation and Black peoples’ on-going struggle for freedom, in the 60's. Seventeen sixty, Eighteen sixty, then the Turbulent 60's. I watched as horses, dogs and fire hoses attacked and pushed helpless old Grandmothers down. I had seen enough. It was time for action.
