Askia Muhammad Touré was one of the earliest and forceful voices in the Black Arts/Black Aesthetic Movement. Touré has also been a member of the legendary Umbra Group. Touré's books include Earth (1968), JuJu: Magic songs for the Black Nation (with Ben Caldwell) (1970), Songhai! (1972), and From the Pyramids to the Projects (1990), which won an American Book Award. One of the architects of the Black Arts/Black Aesthetic Movement, Askia Touré has responded on many levels to the culture of black liberation. His poems and essays, widely published in Black Scholar, Soulbook, Black Theatre, Black World, and Freedomways embody the ideology of a people seeking to reclaim their images and history.
