James Emanuel, 92, Poet Who Wrote Of Racism And Fled The U.S.
"Even as his reputation grew, he became increasingly frustrated with racism in America. When European universities began offering him teaching positions in the late '60s, he accepted. By the early '80s, after the death of his only child in Los Angeles, he had vowed never to return to the United States. He never did." The New York Times 10/11/13
