A poet, a pioneer, a power has made her transition. Mari Evans, a major figure of the Black Arts Movement, passed away on March 10, 2017. Hailed a 'people's poet,' Mari Evans' tremendous work helped to inspire ours. We were honored to publish her work, to have her as a member of our Just Us Books family, and to have her as a friend. We will miss you Mari.
