“Thriving Survivors of the PIC
with Lee Underwood, Calvin Arey & Don Wright

Kétu Oladuwa began the discovery of his Afrikan identity on Massachusetts death row when he was 21 years old. Convicted of a murder he did not commit; in prison the poetry and music of the Black Arts Movement liberated his sense of self.  Released from captivity in 1971, he has worked as a journalist, educator, community arts activist, and poet.  Now nearly 80 years old, his work as a poet, youth worker, and community Elder continues through his publishing at RootFolkz Poetz Press, public readings, mentoring young poets, teaching Afrikan drumming, counseling young activists in community engagement, and as the secretary of Fort Wayne’s People of Afrikan Decent Elders Council. In 1999 he co-founded a traditional Afrikan drum and dance ensemble for young people that studied Mandé culture and music during a two-month emersion in West Afrika. Since 2007 through a series of poetry, and jazz projects his work in Fort Wayne thrived before the onset of the Covid pandemic. With his daughter, RasAmen, he co-founded Death Row Shadows, to spotlight mass incarceration.

Music by Dean Stevens and Michael Patterson
