Poetry. "Henry Howard carries on the vision of Jose Marti, with this song of resistance in a time of sociopathic governance. He becomes incarnate with the person crying in the wilderness of oppression. His song is one of communion and the splendor of truth. Henry also writes with the legacy of Eduardo Galeano, telling the story simply and leaving the oppressors self condemned. His call to, 'join us' recalls the urgency of Otto Rene Castillo. While living in Guatemala on March 19, 1967, I was told of his death. He was burned at the stake following four days of torture and mutilation by the Guatemalan Army. His poetry, like that of Henry Howard's calls for a world to win through unifying poetry, love and action...resistance...So thanks very much Henry for using your great gifts once again. We hear your call to sing. May we all be part of the lyrics!"—Blase Bonpane
Henry Howard has been a Los Angeles peace and justice poet since the earliest days of the online literary anti-war protest, Poets Against the War, started by publisher and poet Sam Hamill, in February, 2003. Much of his writing, from poetry to articles and a historical novel-in- progress, is linked by themes of human rights and social justice—just like his life. In 2016, his first collection, Sing to Me of My Rights, published by VAGABOND, was honored with the silver medal in the Living Now Book Awards, Evergreen Medal for World Peace.
