Pomare is often considered the angry black man of modern dance, although he does not consider himself angry or bitter, but that he is rather "telling it like it is". "I'm labeled...angry...because I will not do what they want from a black dancer. They want black exotics... I have something to say and I want to say it honestly, strongly and without having it stolen, borrowed or messed over." The impact of Pomare as writer, dancer and choreographer has definitely helped many gain an understanding of the black experience. Pomare died of cancer in Manhattan. (en)
