Starting with Bob Holman's transcription of the griot poems sung to him by West African legend Papa Susso, Holman builds on that oral tradition to share his own intimate history. Spoken word performer, activist, and Bowery Poetry Club impresario Bob Holman is the former readings curator at the St. Mark's Poetry Project and the original Slammaster of the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. He co-founded the Endangered Language Alliance and served as the host of the PBS series The United States of Poetry and On the Road with Bob Holman on LinkTV. Sing This One Back to Me is his seventh collection.
