The headline with an article last Sunday about the influence of the television executive Shonda Rhimes referred incorrectly to her involvement with the new show “How to Get Away With Murder.” She is the executive producer — not the show’s creator, who is Peter Nowalk. The error was repeated in a headline with the continuation of the article and in an accompanying picture caption. And the article referred incorrectly to the actress Nicole Beharie of the TV show “Sleepy Hollow.” Ms. Beharie, who plays the policewoman Abbie Mills on the show, is a star of “Sleepy Hollow,”  not a sidekick.

In 1967 LeRoi Jones visited Karenga in Los Angeles and became an advocate of Karenga's philosophy of Kawaida . Kawaida, which produced the "Nguzo Saba" (seven principles), Kwanzaa , and an emphasis on African names, was a multifaceted, categorized activist philosophy. Jones also met Bobby Seale and Eldridge Cleaver and worked with a number of the founding members of the Black Panthers . Additionally, Askia Touré was a visiting professor at San Francisco State and was to become a leading (and long-lasting) poet as well as, arguably, the most influential poet-professor in the Black Arts movement. Playwright Ed Bullins and poet Marvin X had established Black Arts West, and Dingane Joe Goncalves had founded the Journal of Black Poetry (1966). This grouping of Ed Bullins, Dingane Joe Goncalves, LeRoi Jones, Sonia Sanchez, Askia M. Touré, and Marvin X became a major nucleus of Black Arts leadership. [14]
