Listen to Voices: Earl Newland

Earl Newland Born in Colón in 1924, Earl Newland was born in Colón in 1924, and is a West Indian Panamanian of African descent who spent a great portion of his life fighting for the rights of the powerless. Despite tragedies in his own life (like the drowning death of his son in 1970), Newland has always dedicated himself to others who need his help. He has visited the sick in area hospitals, worked to educate at-risk West Indian youth, and fought for civilian employees' rights in the US Army. As a poet, community leader, and unapologetic "militant," Newland has been a messenger as well as an advocate for many minority groups.
