Who Is Coming To Edwardsville? Who? Who?

Congratulations to SIUE for landing the author of the immortal lines:

Who knew the World Trade Center was gonna get bombed
Who told 4000 Israeli workers at the Twin Towers
To stay home that day
Why did Sharon stay away ?

That’s right, Amiri Baraka is coming to Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville as part of the Drumvoices Festival of Black Arts.

How proud SIUE must be.
