The Cowboy Junkies; Amiri Baraka in Memoriam; and a 3D Film of Newark

The life and career of one of New Jersey’s most famous poets, Amiri Baraka (1934-2014). He appeared on State of the Arts multiple times over 30 years and our story features clips from these interviews and performances. Plus, a husband-and-wife filmmaking team from Newark creates a portrait of their hometown in 3D, now playing at the Newark International Airport. And SOPAC, the South Orange Performing Arts Center, is a destination for Americana music including a sold-out show from the Cowboy Junkies, who burst onto the indie music scene in 1988 with their critically acclaimed album, “The Trinity Session.”
