David Henderson supplement
If you have time, read "Obama's victory through the eyes of the poet David Henderson, a precursor to the Black Arts Movement" by Christine Tully-Sitchet.
You could also compare Henderson to an important mid-century poet, the beatnik Allen Ginsberg, author of "Howl," although we will not have time to cover both in class.
Henderson was involved in the East Village Other, noted for its contribution to the "underground comix movement." You can read about it here.
