Cover to Cover Open Book - April 20, 2007

As we celebrate KPFA's 58th anniversary, we take a retrospective look at the amazing poets and writers that have contributed to KPFA and to Pacifica's legacy. One of those luminaries, has been June Jordan. Today, Cover to Cover - Open Book presents an edited version of a Tribute to June Jordan produced by Erica Bridgeman and narrated by Lewis Sawyer. Born July 9, 1936 in Harlem, New York City, she passed away after a long struggle with breast cancer on June 14, 2002, in Berkeley, California.

She published 28 books of poetry, essays, and fiction. She was a regular columnist for The Progressive and a prolific writer whose articles appeared in The Village Voice, The New York Times, Ms., Essence, the American Poetry Review, The Nation, and many other periodicals.
