BOSTON (Reuters) – Dick Bancroft has been photographing the American Indian Movement (AIM) since it was founded in the late 1960s by activists with a vision of self-determination and a strategy of confrontation.
“We Are Still Here: A Photographic History of the American Indian Movement,” published earlier this year with text by Native American journalist Laura Waterman Wittstock, is his record of the group’s fight for civil rights.
BOSTON (Reuters) – Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter has dusted off his guitar, practiced five hours a day and polished a repertoire for his first live-performance tour in nearly a decade.
Hunter’s way with words has earned him a place in the American idiom. “What a long strange trip it’s been,” from the 1970 Grateful Dead hit “Truckin’,” has become a widely used description of life’s serendipities.
BOSTON, May 9 (Reuters) – Paul Theroux said his literary
goodbye to Africa at a train station in Luanda, Angola, five
decades after he first visited the continent as a Peace Corps
In his new book, “The Last Train to Zona Verde: My Ultimate
African Safari,” Theroux describes a journey through South
Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Angola that dead-ended at the
depot when he felt no need to go further. The book, he says,
represents a final chapter on his travels in Africa.
