"With a career in the performing arts that has spanned a lifetime the acclaimed singer, actress, poet, activist, television producer and author, Camille Yarbrough is an influential figure still producing. Not long ago, Yarbrough had a re-release of her album The Iron Pot Cooker, made into CD, for a new generation of fans anxious to get some of Yarbrough's music and wisdom in their souls. Along with release of her new CD came the title from Spin Magazine that Camille Yarbrough is "the foremother of hip hop" and rightfully so, for she's inspired a generation of poets and musicians through her lyrics and passion as a dramatic and poetic performer." --DuEwa M.
