  • Steve Cannon is an American writer and the founder of the cultural organization "A Gathering of the Tribes". He penned the novel "Groove, Bang, and Jive Around",which author Darius James called in the New York Press "an underground classic of such legendary stature that New York's black cognoscenti have transformed the work into an urban myth." Cannon founded the multi-cultural interdisciplinary arts organization "A Gathering of the Tribes" in his home in the New York City borough of Manhattan's East Village neighborhood in 1991. The organization publishes a literary magazine and has now presented its fourteenth issue. The collective also hosts a gallery and performance space where numerous exhibitions and concerts have taken place with notable artists and musicians such as the Sun Ra Arkestra, Chavisa Woods, John Farris, Bob Holman, Ishmael Reed, Billy Bang, Max Blagg and David Hammons. In April 2014 both the organization and Cannon were forced to relocate and the gallery permanently shut when the occupancy agreement they had with the woman to whom the building had previously been sold, Lorraine Zhang, ended. Simultaneously a wall which retained some of an art-piece by David Hammons (which had previously been sold to an art collector after having been reproduced and the originality of the object transferred) was removed and relocated by the organization and replaced by another minus the pedigree adornment.
