Larry Neal was a theater scholar, critic, and poet. He is known for his important role during the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s.
"The artist and the political activist are one. They are both shapers of the future reality. Both understand and manipulate the collective myths of the race. Both are warriors, priests, lovers, and destroyers."
