A very sad loss to the disability arts community. I remember being awestruck by Lynn's performance of Weights when Extant toured back in 2004 I think it was.

My name is Diane Glenn-Manning, My husband's name is Richard Manning. We live in Fresno , California. I believe my husband is a half brother of Lynn Manning the artistic poet, and Co-founder of the Watts Theater Village. Richard and I send our condolences and prayers to the family of Lynn Manning. We just received the news of his passing. We both wished we could have gotten more aqainted with Lynn and his family. God Bless Lynn, May he Rest in Peace!
