 HOLOCAUST

A WORK BY BARACK THE COMPOSER

Author, performer, musician and poet, Barack the Composer has been featured at several Poets Corner readings, immediately capturing attention with his stentorian baritone, concise phrasing and riveting  delivery. His powerful messages for social justice, peace and understanding provide a voice for those who may not always be heard and food for thought for those who hear his words.
