||On July 16, 1999, the Malone Community Center
and Nebraska Arts Council sponsored a spoken word and poetry presentation by Mutabaruka.
During this hour-long recital, Muta discusses some of the
experiences from which his poetry emerges. Muta reasons about the
formation of the Rastafarian culture and expresses some of his views on politics,
religion, neocolonialism and drugs. "Religion is created by insecure men to
oppress women" declares Muta, who also recites many of his poems
which have appeared on his recordings and poetry books.
