Baron James Ashanti’s literary career began in 1965 with readings at the County Cullen Branch of the Library in Harlem, and he began to publish nationally in 1966.  His work has since appeared in Europe, Afrika, and Asia. He is listed in Who’s Who in The World; Who’s Who in America; Who’s Who in American Education; Who’s Who in America-Editors; Writers and Poets; Who’s Who in North American Poetry; The International Who’s Who in Poetry; The International Writer and Author’s Who’s Who and The Poets and Writer’s Directory. During the Black Arts Movement (1965-1974) he developed into a Writer/Activist, preferring not to pontificate on the side-lines but to steer on a course of 13 straight years political action.
