Memorial Information for David Blair
« on: July 26, 2011, 03:52:37 PM »
Peace, Fam:

As you know our slam poet and friend, David Blair, passed away this weekend.  A website has been launched to provide his obituary, memorial service information and ways that the poetry community can contribute to his family to offset the costs of his final expenses.  The website is: www.dblair.org.

Thank you all so much for the outpouring of love and support you've given the city of Detroit.
