Poetic Obituaries: Louis Reyes Rivera--poet laureate and

people's historian of the CUNY movement--passed away in the early hours of March 3, 2012, leaving behind a legacy as vibrant as the Africana, LatinAmerican, and Caribbean communities for whom he dedicated his life to document and praise. As evident in the dozens of public remembrances that have already surfaced since his death, Rivera will be celebrated as a tirelessly principled elder and radical artist par excellence to a huge extended family in the social justice, performance, and writing scenes in CUNY and around NYC.
