CUBA
The rhyme rhythm and reasoning or revolution

Jack Hirschman, born in The Bronx in the 1930s, was a recent Poet Laureate of San Francisco and still upholds at age 80 the title of SF oldest newsie, by virtue of his tireless sales of the People's Tribune. His poetry has been politically present for at least four decades, as has been his mentorship of countless poets and other cultural workers.
Dottie Payne is a teacher and a cultural worker. Until recently her Artistes Internationale was warm and welcoming to poets, musicians, cultural presentations ... until her landlord dropped on her that drone of class warfare called the rent increase. One suspects, however, that that cultural center will be back with geometrically added strength. Dottie's first book of poems is BIRTHMARKS published this year
Dottie and Jack are both founders and members of the SF Revolutionary Poets Brigade. They recently attended the annual conference of the World Poetry Movement, held in Cuba in May. They will be sharing their journey, what transpired at this event, and its significance to our efforts to fuse our cultural work with both the weapon of criticism and. ... criticism of the weapon.
