Somebody should write a book about Cass Tech in Detroit. An amazing number
of African-American artistic and political leaders have come out of that
institution. Lou mentions two leaders of the SWP, Derrick Morrison and
Norman (Muhammad) Oliver. There were many others. Malik Miah and Maceo
Dixon come to mind.
Another (non-political) acquaintance of mine who went to Cass Tech is Howard
Austin. I studied graphic design under him many years ago at Milwaukee Area
Technical College. He was also the host for many years here in Milwaukee of
THE BEST jazz program on local public radio. He was recently let go (or
quit) as a result of public radio's never-ending search for mediocrity.
