Abstract:

"Known for groundbreaking works such as Africans and Native Americans, Columbus and Other Cannibals, and The American Discovery of Europe--as well as his essential contribution to the institutional realization of Native American and Indigenous Studies--this project aims to present the work of Dr. Jack Forbes to new audiences. The extraordinary and little known autobiographical poems gathered in El-Lay Riots explore the intersection of race, ethnicity, class, and status in Los Angeles during its population boom in the 1930s and 40s. Yet, written in the early 1990s, the poetry also illuminates political and social uprisings in Los Angeles that would ripple outward nationally. Similarly, "What Is Time?" uses the poetic form to address themes that Forbes dwelt on throughout his life, as a poet, scholar, activist, educator, and thinker. Drawing on a range of representative materials from his enormous archive--poetry, position papers, institutional proposals (including his involvement in the creation of D-Q University, as well as in the development of Native American Studies at the University of California, Davis, a model that would be emulated elsewhere), "Yanga Ya" embraces the radical and transformative artistic and intellectual vision of Dr. Jack Forbes." -- Publisher's website.
