Sarah Webster Fabio was a poet, scholar, activist and a leading figure in the world of African-American Studies. Born in Nashville, TN she taught at Merritt College in Oakland, CA at the same time that Black Panthers Bobby Seale and Huey Newton were students there, and she helped to start the UC Berkeley African-American Studies department. In 1976 she released this album of poetry backed by one of the funkiest bands on the West Coast, which included a number of her children. This is an absolutely stunning record of spoken word and funk, back in print on LP so you don't have to spend upwards of $2,000 on eBay. Lovingly reissued in a perfect replica of the original Folkways jacket and including a reproduction of the original information booklet.
Cat. number: FW09714
The poem in track 2 by Cyril L. Fabio III is titled "Solemnly Mine".
