Amiri Baraka - LIFE STORIES
 
 
3/24/1964     Amiri Baraka, Broadway to 9/11
On this day in 1964 Amiri Baraka's one-act play, Dutchman, opened off-Broadway, launching its author into 40 years of racial controversy. Baraka, then still know as LeRoi Jones, suggested in the play that racial killing might be a last-resort path to healing for oppressed and repressed African-Americans -- "a whole people of neurotics, struggling to keep from being sane."
