David Henderson makes a rare appearance in San Francisco to read his poetry and talk with the audience, returning from his longtime home on New York's Lower East Side. Henderson became connected to the Black Arts Movement through the Umbra Workshop, where he served as an editor of its magazine and the three Umbra anthologies. His best-known books of poetry are "De Mayor of Harlem" (1970) and "Neo-California" (1998), and he has read a selection of his poetry for the permanent archives of the Library of Congress.
