The late Piri Thomas and Suzie Dod.
The couple hosted Naz's first venue when she arrived in the city. At the time they lived in a large home near Dolores Park in the Mission District, San Francisco, California. Suzie Dod Thomas is the Assistant Managing Editor of "Social Justice. A Journal of Crime, Conflict and World Order."
Piri Thomas died October 2011 -- a great loss to his family and friends around the world. He is pictured at my Oakland apartment during a Christmas gathering in 1997. Piri too has an enormous resume that includes poetry, prose, flows, lectures, and a PBS documentary, entitled "Every Child is Born a Poet -- The Life and Work of Piri Thomas." He was perhaps best known for his book "Down These Mean Streets."
