>Akilah Oliver (1961-2011)

News has just reached us that the poet Akilah Oliver has died.

Footage of her reading with Anne Waldman and Lavonne Caesar
has been posted on Naropa University’s SWP blog and there is a
detailed and heartfelt note today on The Poetry Project blog.
Here are more details on her work from her publisher, Coffee
House Press. A tireless teacher, activist, parent, sister, our thoughts
go out to family and friends in the community. She will be sorely missed
