ABOUT THE EDITOR

ABIODUN OYEWOLE
ABIODUN OYEWOLE is a poet, teacher, and founding member of the American music and spoken-word group, the Last Poets (1968), which laid the groundwork for the emergence of hip hop. He performed on the Last Poets’ albums, The Last Poets (1970), Holy Terror (1993), and The Time Has Come (1997). He rejoined The Last Poets during its 1990s resurgence, and co-edited with Umar Bin Hassan, On A Mission: Selected Poems and a History of the Last Poets (1996). He published his first poetry collection with 2Leaf Press, Branches of The Tree of Life: The Collected Poems of Abiodun Oyewole 1969-2013 (2Leaf Press, 2014), released the rap CD, 25 Years (1996), and the song albums, Gratitude (Sons Rising Entertainment, 2014), and Love Has No Season (2014). Oyewole received his B.S. in Biology and B.A. in Communications at Shaw University, an M.A. in Education at Columbia University, and is a Columbia Charles H. Revson Fellow (1989). Over the years, Oyewole has collaborated on more than a dozen albums and several books. He writes poetry almost every day, travels around the world performing poetry and teaching workshops, gives lectures on poetry, history and politics, and holds a weekly salon for artists, poets and writers in his home in Harlem, New York. www.abiodunoyewole.net
