June Jordan was born in Harlem in 1936 and was the author of ten books of poetry, seven collections of essays, two plays, one libretto, a novel, a memoir, five children's books and "June Jordan's Poetry for the People: A Revolutionary Blueprint."  As a professor at UC Berkeley, Jordan established Poetry for the People, a program to train student teachers how to teach the power of poetry from a multicultural worldview.

After her death from breast cancer in 2002, a school in the San Francisco School District was renamed in her honor.
