This poem was wrote by raúl r. salinas. A well-know political activist, poet, and a dear friend. His was poem was featured in our own "Austin Downtown Arts Magazine," (January - February 2002).
For the last two Februarys I've written pieces on African American History Month, on the Blues Family Tree Project and our archive and concerts, on African American culture and history. Yeah, every February we black folks become very popular -- to each other and everybody else.
