Larry Neal was born in 1937 in Atlanta, GA, raised in Philadelphia and went to Lincoln University. He later moved to Harlem in the early 1960s. Larry Neal is one of the architects of the Black Arts Movement. His early writings were influential in defining and describing the role of the arts in the Black Power era.
