BOMB Magazine | Milford Graves A Mind Body Deal
Editors Mark Christman, Celeste DiNucci, and Anthony Elms’s book Milford Graves: A Mind-Body Deal is a strikingly beautiful experience of the life, mind, and work of one of the foremost creatives of our time. Born in Jamaica, Queens, Milford Graves (1941–2021) worked across numerous modalities such as music, art, herbalism, martial arts, acupuncture, and cardiology to help people “reach another kind of freedom that’s been given to us by nature.”
