That would be difficult to confirm, but Zu-Bolton was known to have visited many high schools, and he was in the area at that time.
I think it safe to assume for now that Zu-Bolton was not the "poet-in-residence" at Carver, but that he probably did visit Will's class.
Barring any further evidence from Will (or other interested parties), let's all agree to leave it at the above.
For now, we can leave it there:

Ahmos Zu-Bolton did come to Carver High in Columbus, Georgia in Spring of 1976 and was introduced to the English class as "poet in residence" by Dan Barfield, our teacher.

Since I don't yet have any evidence of this (except Dan Barfield's confirmation that it is true) I agree we should let the matter rest, for now.

Michael, why would he be in Columbus, Ga. when he was starting up a business in Texas at the same time?
He was never at the Columbus high school.
Yes, Ahmos Zu-Bolton was here in the Spring of 1976, but I doubt /you/ were, so stop posting your guesses as if they were facts, "Me".

I'm worried about how that phrase "poet-in-residence" is taking over the discussion. It's the first time I've noticed you using it. Originally, IIRC, you said that he was introduced as "Resident Poet" - that's close, I suppose, but I'd even question that wording.

For reasons I won't get into, I think the term that was used was "visiting poet". That term fits the job description you described (IIRC) - in the school for a couple of weeks.

A "poet-in-residence", OTOH, would be someone hired for the full school year, or at the very least for a full semester.

Hello, George... I just posted about that over on another Ahmos Zu-Bolton thread:

Yes, General Zod, the true story of the events of spring 1976 is emerging.
Zu Bolton visited your school.
Dan Barfield introduced him as the "poet-in-residence." Dan Barfield was probably making a joke.
You assumed "in residence" meant that he was living in Georgia.
End of story.
I have discussed the Ahmos Zu-Bolton story with Barfield since, but not specifically the details on "poet-in-residence" part.

Barfield did mention taking Zu-Bolton to his bank on payday so they could cash their checks, so whatever his title at Carver, they did pay him.

"Visiting Poet" is what Dan Barfield tells me it was, now, which is fine. Barfield knew Zu-Bolton, and even helped him cash his paycheck when the racist bank officers questioned him.

On a similar topic, it turns out that a /lot/ of local folks remember that Everly Brothers show I wrote about. I posted this message on Facebook:

"Does anyone else remember when The Everly Brothers performed in Columbus, Georgia at the Fair free show in 1969? I was there but nobody else I know was. Hard to believe now that such name acts would play at Golden Park, but they were there, as well as other name acts back in those days. I'm finding no record of this online... Gooding's Million Dolllar Midway put on a world class Fair back then.."

Debby M B: 13 years old and oh, so excited to see them! Fond memories!

Kim N: I remember seeing Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods in their heyday early to mid 70s.

Stephen M M: my brother got free tickets on stage with the Everly Brothers...he had a broken leg and was on crutches..

Sue M: I was a flight attendant for Delta and they were on the plane from Atlanta to Columbus. Very nice people!

Ricky G: I saw Kenny Rogers there once.

Diane P C: I was there and saw them perform ❤️

Sandra R: Saw them and many others !

Tad W: Saw Cab Callaway

Michael D: I was there, it was probably the best free acts show I ever saw. I’m not sure 1969 is correct though. I thought it was a few years later than that.

Bill G: I worked the free acts at the fair when they brought Mark Wilson of the Saturday morning magic show , Dean Martin`s "gold diggers" , George Kirby ---ole George was a terrific entertainer ---George & Mark were very nice folks , great tippers to me & my best friend Charles R. ---whom later became asst. chief of police in Col., Ga.

Sue G: Yes and also came to Auditorium a few yrs before. My cousins paid for me and my sister to go

Steve B: Sonny and Cher. Johnny Cash and Statler Brothers

Peggy M: Yes I do in 1970. I was pregnant with my son and got hit in the head by part of the fireworks.

Susan T: Yes they did, I saw Johnny T. even talked to the Everly Brothers and got his autograph. They had some great shows back then

Sharon S R: I saw the Everly Brothers at the auditorium in 1958. My first concert.

Debra M: I saw them at the Chattahoochee Valley Fair as it was called back then. Also saw other great performers there every year for free (mind you just the entrance fee to get into the fair)

Dora B G: I remember back in 1956n or '57 The Everly Bros. were at the Auditorium. Cause I was backstage and met them both.

Lisa H: I was there I saw them in 69

Ron M: Tanya Tucker

Victoria F: I was there!
I've always been a fan of theirs....
I remember it like it was yesterday....

David L: Most acts that played Fairs were either on their way up or down-usually the former...

Vanda G: I was there and got to meet them!!!

Mimi S H: Daddy worked with a talent agent out of Chicago and staffed the free acts. I remember his conversations with a man he called Stacy. Stacy was his last name. Stacy gave him information that formed the activity of the free acts. Who was up and coming (e.g.The Carpenters), who would sign autographs (e.g. the reason Lorne Green was not invited) who wowed the crowd everytime (e.g. Dave Meriwether, who did acrobatics from a helicopter) so he was invited back multiple times... I loved eavesdropping on his conversations. Miss it!

Danny D: I was there . Also saw Kenny Rogers at the fair.

Jeffrey N: I saw Bobby Goldsboro at the fair...I think somewhere around 72 or 73

Carolyn McC: Lots of great entertainment at the fair years ago. Not a fair anymore ..is a carnival now.

Tammy M: I was very young but I remember seeing them too!

Tim N: I was there but they refused to sign autographs, I really like the Everly Brothers harmony but unfortunately that’s what I remember most.

Mimi S H: That was the last year autographs were refused. When my Dad found out that was the first criteria of who he hired going forward.

Tim N: Went to a diamonds and denim get together and chubby Checker was there, his face look like it was made out of plastic but he danced down onto the floor and as he walked by me I had a 45 RPM record of the twist and I wanted him to sign it and he said he didn’t have time for such stuff so I broke it and threw it on the ground,I know that was rude and I almost regretted it. He had a twisting machine on stage where he stood in one place in the machine did the twisting for him almost look like something you see you in a gym

Mimi S H: Daddy used to say people who refused to sign autographs didn’t deserve to be famous.

Jeff T: That is why Willie Nelson is so loved by his fans. I saw him in 2008 at the River Center. He was in his seventies, yet he did a two hour show. Then he spent the next hour signing autographs. I don't know how many times he bent over from the stage to get the items that he autographed.

Tom L: I remember it in 1971..or 1972

Kelly C: I remember because I was 7 and my Mama dragged me in there to see them. When you are 7 at the fair the last thing you want to do is go to a concert! Lol

Anita K: 🎶 I was 10 years old and I thought I would die when my Mom told me I was going to see them in person ❤️💯 I still listen to their music and I always think about that concert!!!!! Great memories ❣️

Debbie R B: Collins We saw tanya tucker, billy crash craddock and lots of others

Bill G: I worked with ole Crash`s brother doing drywall work in Myrtle Beach back in 1975 ---he told me that 'Crash' gave him his drywall tools when he signed record deal

Jeff H: I remember Tanya Tucker performing in Golden Park during fair week in the early 1970’s

Mimi S H: Jeff, she was 16! I was overwhelmed!

Dean S: Saw Charlie Pride in 79

Bill H: Saw Paul Revere and the Raiders there when I was a kid, I would guess about 1965.

Jim E: I remember Lester Maddox there in a booth shaking hands.

Jene' J G: I remember when Kenny Rogers & the First Edition were the free act at the fair.

Linda N: I remember Jeannie C. Riley being there in 1980. My husband got a kiss from her. Made his day!

Barbara: Also, Eddie Rabbit

Sharon P: There was lots of great entertainment back then. I remember seeing Jeannie C. Riley, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, Tanya Tucker, & lots of other. I miss it!

Wendell B: I was there, also saw George Jones at Fair.

Will Dockery: So glad a few others here remember when the Everly Brothers did the show here... it isn't listed anywhere on the internet, that I can find. :)

Wow, that was quite a fair! When I was a child, the local fairs were put on by the local Catholic Church, and puny things with no entertainment..

I did go the 1964 World's fair in NYC, though.

That sounds reasonable.
It seems highly unlikely that Ahmos Zu-Bolton was the "poet-in-residence," and no Carver High yearbooks have surfaced showing him as a member of the faculty.
He was in the area at the time, and may have visited Will's English class.
That would be difficult to confirm, but Zu-Bolton was known to have visited many high schools, and he was in the area at that time.
I think it safe to assume for now that Zu-Bolton was not the "poet-in-residence" at Carver, but that he probably did visit Will's class.
Barring any further evidence from Will (or other interested parties), let's all agree to leave it at the above.
Ahmos Zu-Bolton did come to Carver High in Columbus, Georgia in Spring of 1976 and was introduced to the English class as "poet in residence" by Dan Barfield, our teacher.
Since I don't yet have any evidence of this (except Dan Barfield's confirmation that it is true) I agree we should let the matter rest, for now.
I'm worried about how that phrase "poet-in-residence" is taking over the discussion. It's the first time I've noticed you using it. Originally, IIRC, you said that he was introduced as "Resident Poet" - that's close, I suppose, but I'd even question that wording.

Sue M: I was a flight attendant for Delta and they were on the plane from Atlanta to Columbus. Very nice people!
Ricky G: I saw Kenny Rogers there once.
Diane P C: I was there and saw them perform ❤️
Sandra R: Saw them and many others !
Tad W: Saw Cab Callaway
Michael D: I was there, it was probably the best free acts show I ever saw. I’m not sure 1969 is correct though. I thought it was a few years later than that.
Bill G: I worked the free acts at the fair when they brought Mark Wilson of the Saturday morning magic show , Dean Martin`s "gold diggers" , George Kirby ---ole George was a terrific entertainer ---George & Mark were very nice folks , great tippers to me & my best friend Charles R. ---whom later became asst. chief of police in Col., Ga.
Sue G: Yes and also came to Auditorium a few yrs before. My cousins paid for me and my sister to go
Steve B: Sonny and Cher. Johnny Cash and Statler Brothers
Peggy M: Yes I do in 1970. I was pregnant with my son and got hit in the head by part of the fireworks.
Susan T: Yes they did, I saw Johnny T. even talked to the Everly Brothers and got his autograph. They had some great shows back then
Sharon S R: I saw the Everly Brothers at the auditorium in 1958. My first concert.
Debra M: I saw them at the Chattahoochee Valley Fair as it was called back then. Also saw other great performers there every year for free (mind you just the entrance fee to get into the fair)
Dora B G: I remember back in 1956n or '57 The Everly Bros. were at the Auditorium. Cause I was backstage and met them both.
Lisa H: I was there I saw them in 69
Ron M: Tanya Tucker
Victoria F: I was there!
I've always been a fan of theirs....
I remember it like it was yesterday....
David L: Most acts that played Fairs were either on their way up or down-usually the former...
Vanda G: I was there and got to meet them!!!
Mimi S H: Daddy worked with a talent agent out of Chicago and staffed the free acts. I remember his conversations with a man he called Stacy. Stacy was his last name. Stacy gave him information that formed the activity of the free acts. Who was up and coming (e.g.The Carpenters), who would sign autographs (e.g. the reason Lorne Green was not invited) who wowed the crowd everytime (e.g. Dave Meriwether, who did acrobatics from a helicopter) so he was invited back multiple times... I loved eavesdropping on his conversations. Miss it!
Danny D: I was there . Also saw Kenny Rogers at the fair.
Jeffrey N: I saw Bobby Goldsboro at the fair...I think somewhere around 72 or 73
Carolyn McC: Lots of great entertainment at the fair years ago. Not a fair anymore ..is a carnival now.
Tammy M: I was very young but I remember seeing them too!
Tim N: I was there but they refused to sign autographs, I really like the Everly Brothers harmony but unfortunately that’s what I remember most.
Mimi S H: That was the last year autographs were refused. When my Dad found out that was the first criteria of who he hired going forward.
Tim N: Went to a diamonds and denim get together and chubby Checker was there, his face look like it was made out of plastic but he danced down onto the floor and as he walked by me I had a 45 RPM record of the twist and I wanted him to sign it and he said he didn’t have time for such stuff so I broke it and threw it on the ground,I know that was rude and I almost regretted it. He had a twisting machine on stage where he stood in one place in the machine did the twisting for him almost look like something you see you in a gym
Mimi S H: Daddy used to say people who refused to sign autographs didn’t deserve to be famous.
Jeff T: That is why Willie Nelson is so loved by his fans. I saw him in 2008 at the River Center. He was in his seventies, yet he did a two hour show. Then he spent the next hour signing autographs. I don't know how many times he bent over from the stage to get the items that he autographed.
Tom L: I remember it in 1971..or 1972
Kelly C: I remember because I was 7 and my Mama dragged me in there to see them. When you are 7 at the fair the last thing you want to do is go to a concert! Lol
Anita K: 🎶 I was 10 years old and I thought I would die when my Mom told me I was going to see them in person ❤️💯 I still listen to their music and I always think about that concert!!!!! Great memories ❣️
Debbie R B: Collins We saw tanya tucker, billy crash craddock and lots of others
Bill G: I worked with ole Crash`s brother doing drywall work in Myrtle Beach back in 1975 ---he told me that 'Crash' gave him his drywall tools when he signed record deal
Jeff H: I remember Tanya Tucker performing in Golden Park during fair week in the early 1970’s
Mimi S H: Jeff, she was 16! I was overwhelmed!
Dean S: Saw Charlie Pride in 79
Bill H: Saw Paul Revere and the Raiders there when I was a kid, I would guess about 1965.
Jim E: I remember Lester Maddox there in a booth shaking hands.
Jene' J G: I remember when Kenny Rogers & the First Edition were the free act at the fair.
Linda N: I remember Jeannie C. Riley being there in 1980. My husband got a kiss from her. Made his day!
Barbara: Also, Eddie Rabbit
Sharon P: There was lots of great entertainment back then. I remember seeing Jeannie C. Riley, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, Tanya Tucker, & lots of other. I miss it!
Wendell B: I was there, also saw George Jones at Fair.
Will Dockery: So glad a few others here remember when the Everly Brothers did the show here... it isn't listed anywhere on the internet, that I can find. :)
Wow, that was quite a fair! When I was a child, the local fairs were put on by the local Catholic Church, and puny things with no entertainment..
I did go the 1964 World's fair in NYC, though.

"Does anyone else remember when The Everly Brothers performed in Columbus, Georgia at the Fair free show in 1969? I was there but nobody else I know was. Hard to believe now that such name acts would play at Golden Park, but they were there, as well as other name acts back in those days. I'm finding no record of this online... Gooding's Million Dolllar Midway put on a world class Fair back then.."

The remembrances are all over the place, and mostly from people who were under 10. The date was 1969--or much earlier or years later. The Everly Brothers signed autographs or refused to sign autographs. It's odd that so many people who were "there" also got to meet the Everly Brothers or even were on the stage with them!

I see that the Everly Brothers put on shows in Columbus, Georgia at least twice, once in the late 1950s, and at least once in the late 1960s/early 1970s, which is the show I attended.

One thing that set the date at 1969 (but it could have been later) was the comment a kid near me made that I quietly sneered at:

"I wish they had gotten the Hagler Brothers to do a show..."

The Hagler Brothers were big stars on the television series Hee Haw at that time, circa 1969-70.

The remembrances are all over the place, and mostly from people who were under 10. The date was 1969--or much earlier or years later. The Everly Brothers signed autographs or refused to sign autographs. It's odd that so many people who were "there" also got to meet the Everly Brothers or even were on the stage with them!
I see that the Everly Brothers put on shows in Columbus, Georgia at least twice, once in the late 1950s, and at least once in the late 1960s/early 1970s, which is the show I attended.
Where do you see that will?

"I wish they had gotten the Hagler Brothers to do a show..."
The Hagler Brothers were big stars on the television series Hee Haw at that time, circa 1969-70.

Hager brothers. It's pronounced with a long "A". Hagler is pronounced with a short "A" as in "Millie was a sea hag".

That sounds reasonable.
It seems highly unlikely that Ahmos Zu-Bolton was the "poet-in-residence," and no Carver High yearbooks have surfaced showing him as a member of the faculty.
He was in the area at the time, and may have visited Will's English class.
That would be difficult to confirm, but Zu-Bolton was known to have visited many high schools, and he was in the area at that time.
I think it safe to assume for now that Zu-Bolton was not the "poet-in-residence" at Carver, but that he probably did visit Will's class.
Barring any further evidence from Will (or other interested parties), let's all agree to leave it at the above.
Ahmos Zu-Bolton did come to Carver High in Columbus, Georgia in Spring of 1976 and was introduced to the English class as "poet in residence" by Dan Barfield, our teacher.
Since I don't yet have any evidence of this (except Dan Barfield's confirmation that it is true) I agree we should let the matter rest, for now.
I'm worried about how that phrase "poet-in-residence" is taking over the discussion. It's the first time I've noticed you using it. Originally, IIRC, you said that he was introduced as "Resident Poet" - that's close, I suppose, but I'd even question that wording.
For reasons I won't get into, I think the term that was used was "visiting poet". That term fits the job description you described (IIRC) - in the school for a couple of weeks.
A "poet-in-residence", OTOH, would be someone hired for the full school year, or at the very least for a full semester.
"Visiting Poet" is what Dan Barfield tells me it was, now, which is fine. Barfield knew Zu-Bolton, and even helped him cash his paycheck when the racist bank officers questioned him.
"Does anyone else remember when The Everly Brothers performed in Columbus, Georgia at the Fair free show in 1969? I was there but nobody else I know was.

Debby M B: 13 years old and oh, so excited to see them! Fond memories!
Kim N: I remember seeing Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods in their heyday early to mid 70s.
Stephen M M: my brother got free tickets on stage with the Everly Brothers....he had a broken leg and was on crutches..
Sue M: I was a flight attendant for Delta and they were on the plane from Atlanta to Columbus. Very nice people!
Ricky G: I saw Kenny Rogers there once.
Diane P C: I was there and saw them perform ❤️
Sandra R: Saw them and many others !
Tad W: Saw Cab Callaway
Michael D: I was there, it was probably the best free acts show I ever saw. I'm not sure 1969 is correct though. I thought it was a few years later than that.
Bill G: I worked the free acts at the fair when they brought Mark Wilson of the Saturday morning magic show , Dean Martin`s "gold diggers" , George Kirby ---ole George was a terrific entertainer ---George & Mark were very nice folks , great tippers to me & my best friend Charles R. ---whom later became asst. chief of police in Col., Ga.
Sue G: Yes and also came to Auditorium a few yrs before. My cousins paid for me and my sister to go
Steve B: Sonny and Cher. Johnny Cash and Statler Brothers
Peggy M: Yes I do in 1970. I was pregnant with my son and got hit in the head by part of the fireworks.
Susan T: Yes they did, I saw Johnny T. even talked to the Everly Brothers and got his autograph. They had some great shows back then
Sharon S R: I saw the Everly Brothers at the auditorium in 1958. My first concert.
Debra M: I saw them at the Chattahoochee Valley Fair as it was called back then. Also saw other great performers there every year for free (mind you just the entrance fee to get into the fair)
Dora B G: I remember back in 1956n or '57 The Everly Bros. were at the Auditorium. Cause I was backstage and met them both.
Lisa H: I was there I saw them in 69
Ron M: Tanya Tucker
Victoria F: I was there!
I've always been a fan of theirs....
I remember it like it was yesterday....
David L: Most acts that played Fairs were either on their way up or down-usually the former...
Vanda G: I was there and got to meet them!!!
Mimi S H: Daddy worked with a talent agent out of Chicago and staffed the free acts. I remember his conversations with a man he called Stacy. Stacy was his last name. Stacy gave him information that formed the activity of the free acts. Who was up and coming (e.g.The Carpenters), who would sign autographs (e.g. the reason Lorne Green was not invited) who wowed the crowd everytime (e.g. Dave Meriwether, who did acrobatics from a helicopter) so he was invited back multiple times... I loved eavesdropping on his conversations. Miss it!
Danny D: I was there . Also saw Kenny Rogers at the fair.
Jeffrey N: I saw Bobby Goldsboro at the fair...I think somewhere around 72 or 73
Carolyn McC: Lots of great entertainment at the fair years ago. Not a fair anymore ..is a carnival now.
Tammy M: I was very young but I remember seeing them too!
Tim N: I was there but they refused to sign autographs, I really like the Everly Brothers harmony but unfortunately that's what I remember most.
Mimi S H: That was the last year autographs were refused. When my Dad found out that was the first criteria of who he hired going forward.
Tim N: Went to a diamonds and denim get together and chubby Checker was there, his face look like it was made out of plastic but he danced down onto the floor and as he walked by me I had a 45 RPM record of the twist and I wanted him to sign it and he said he didn't have time for such stuff so I broke it and threw it on the ground,I know that was rude and I almost regretted it. He had a twisting machine on stage where he stood in one place in the machine did the twisting for him almost look like something you see you in a gym
Mimi S H: Daddy used to say people who refused to sign autographs didn't deserve to be famous.
Jeff T: That is why Willie Nelson is so loved by his fans. I saw him in 2008 at the River Center. He was in his seventies, yet he did a two hour show. Then he spent the next hour signing autographs. I don't know how many times he bent over from the stage to get the items that he autographed.
Tom L: I remember it in 1971..or 1972
Kelly C: I remember because I was 7 and my Mama dragged me in there to see them. When you are 7 at the fair the last thing you want to do is go to a concert! Lol
Anita K: 🎶 I was 10 years old and I thought I would die when my Mom told me I was going to see them in person ❤️💯 I still listen to their music and I always think about that concert!!!!! Great memories ❣️
Debbie R B: Collins We saw tanya tucker, billy crash craddock and lots of others
Bill G: I worked with ole Crash`s brother doing drywall work in Myrtle Beach back in 1975 ---he told me that 'Crash' gave him his drywall tools when he signed record deal
Jeff H: I remember Tanya Tucker performing in Golden Park during fair week in the early 1970's
Mimi S H: Jeff, she was 16! I was overwhelmed!
Dean S: Saw Charlie Pride in 79
Bill H: Saw Paul Revere and the Raiders there when I was a kid, I would guess about 1965.
Jim E: I remember Lester Maddox there in a booth shaking hands.
Jene' J G: I remember when Kenny Rogers & the First Edition were the free act at the fair.
Linda N: I remember Jeannie C. Riley being there in 1980. My husband got a kiss from her. Made his day!
Barbara: Also, Eddie Rabbit
Sharon P: There was lots of great entertainment back then. I remember seeing Jeannie C. Riley, Kenny Rogers and the First Edition, Tanya Tucker, & lots of other. I miss it!
Wendell B: I was there, also saw George Jones at Fair.

Michael, why would he be in Columbus, Ga. when he was starting up a business in Texas at the same time?
He was here in the Spring of 1976, that left him the rest of the year to do whatever else that year.
My bad.
I'm starting to confuse them with the facts
No, you were on the right track, as usual it is "Me" who is confused.

He was not working here, no matter how much you claim it. You are lying. You have not backed up your claim. Your request for proof on the Facebook graduating class group has gone unanswered by all of the classmates. Admit your lie and move on for a change.

Zu Bolton visited your school.
Dan Barfield introduced him as the "poet-in-residence." Dan Barfield was probably making a joke.
You assumed "in residence" meant that he was living in Georgia.
I have discussed the Ahmos Zu-Bolton story with Barfield since, but not specifically the details on "poet-in-residence" part.
Barfield did mention taking Zu-Bolton to his bank on payday so they could cash their checks, so whatever his title at Carver, they did pay him.
<snip for focus>
I think it's possible that Zu-Bolton was paid to speak to Will's English class.
Based on his age, it's a safe bet that Will was left back one year (in addition to his Senior year). We don't know what year that was, so it might have been while he was in high school.
This gives Zu-Bolton a five year window of time to have been in GA (Sept. 1973-June 1978).
Will is either misremembering the "Poet-in-Residence" title, or Barfield may have been joking. Will misremembers a lot of dates/ages from 45 years ago... as do most of us.
I will admit my memory is getting worse with my old age.

The reason I can be sure the date Ahmos Zu-Bolton visited Carver High is that it was during the time Dan Barfield was teaching English at the school, which was on and around Spring 1976.

Dan does correct me as to the title Ahmos Zu-Bolton had at that time:

"...conversation with Dan Barfield - he told me Zu-Bolton was "Visiting Poet" for 2 weeks."

"Dan said the bank called the school when Ahmos Zu-Bolton tried to cash his check, and Dan had to go down (which Dan saw as racist)..."

But we’re supposed to take barfly’s word.
The same teacher that had underage girls living with him and that only lasted 2 years there.
And had an underage girl living with him in saint Augustine.
And we know this because you’ve shared it here.

Will is either misremembering the "Poet-in-Residence" title, or Barfield may have been joking. Will misremembers a lot of dates/ages from 45 years ago... as do most of us.
I will admit my memory is getting worse with my old age.
The reason I can be sure the date Ahmos Zu-Bolton visited Carver High is that it was during the time Dan Barfield was teaching English at the school, which was on and around Spring 1976.
"...conversation with Dan Barfield - he told me Zu-Bolton was "Visiting Poet" for 2 weeks."
"Dan said the bank called the school when Ahmos Zu-Bolton tried to cash his check, and Dan had to go down (which Dan saw as racist)..."
:)
But we’re supposed to take barfly’s word.
The same teacher that had underage girls living with him and that only lasted 2 years there.
And had an underage girl living with him in saint Augustine.
And we know this because you’ve shared it here.
Dan Barfly was only at Carver High School for one year.

We are also supposed to believe that the school system came up with a special fund to pay Zu-Bolton for two weeks? Where did he live for two weeks? Living expenses would have taken up his whole "salary."

Zu Bolton visited your school.
Dan Barfield introduced him as the "poet-in-residence." Dan Barfield was probably making a joke.
You assumed "in residence" meant that he was living in Georgia.
I have discussed the Ahmos Zu-Bolton story with Barfield since, but not specifically the details on "poet-in-residence" part.
Barfield did mention taking Zu-Bolton to his bank on payday so they could cash their checks, so whatever his title at Carver, they did pay him.
<snip for focus>
I think it's possible that Zu-Bolton was paid to speak to Will's English class.

He can’t help but lie. That’s all he’s done here for decades.
Lie about his life. Lie about his paying gigs. Lie about the other posters here who caught him and pointed out his lies.

He needed a place to crash before he headed to Texas. Barfield hooked him up with a few schoolgirls.

That sounds reasonable.
It seems highly unlikely that Zu-Bolton was the "poet-in-residence," and no Carver High yearbooks have surfaced showing him as a member of the faculty.
He was in the area at the time, and may have visited Will's English class.
That would be difficult to confirm, but Zu-Bolton was known to have visited many high schools, and he was in the area at that time.
I think it safe to assume for now that Zu-Bolton was not the "poet-in-residence" at Carver, but that he probably did visit Will's class.
Barring any further evidence from Will (or other interested parties), let's all agree to leave it at the above.
Ahmos Zu-Bolton did come to Carver High in Columbus, Georgia in Spring of 1976 and was introduced to the English class as "poet in residence" by Dan Barfield, our teacher.
Since I don't yet have any evidence of this (except Dan Barfield's confirmation that it is true) I agree we should let the matter rest, for now.
;)
He was not working here, no matter how much you claim it. You are lying. You have not backed up your claim. Your request for proof on the Facebook graduating class group has gone unanswered by all of the classmates. Admit your lie and move on for a change.
"You can't prove your right, and that proves that I am." You're arguing exactly like NastyGene, and equally illogically.
What do you expect from a lying identity thief and forger, G.D. ??

I understand that you’re trying to defend wills lies/misrepresentations of facts here.

Who the fuck cares what George Dance has and how does he have the email? Are you not on corresponding terms with Marvin Daniel Barfield? Dance has proven that he will lie to defend you. I'm sure he has second thoughts about funding your book of slop poetry. I wonder if Maureen the Mammoth knows?

"... I met Dan Barfield (first as my English teacher in 1975,..." so, again, Will's a little confused about the dates.
No, I don't know if school years work the same up North as down here, but the school year I met Dan Barfield in started in Fall of 1975 and ended in the Spring of 1976.
Some high school classes last the entire year, others last half a year, or ever one quarter.
You had said that you were sure of that the year of Zu-Bolton was 1976 because that was the year Dan Barfly taught at Carver. Now you're amending that to 1975-76.
Ergo, you were a little confused about the dates.
No, Ahmos Zu-Bolton was around Barfield's English class for a few weeks (I think Barfield says two weeks) in the Spring of 1976. And in public schools down here, back in those days, the class (Such as Barfield's English class) always began in the Fall (1975) and ended in the Spring (1976) and then there would be a three month or so Summer vacation.
Again, school systems in New Jersey may have done it differently, but that's the way it was done down here.
So, I know, I should have written that I met Dan Barfield during the 1975-76 school year, but I didn't.
I was wrong, okay?
Yes, that's perfectly okay.
The expanded range (Sept-Dec of 1975) is actually to your benefit in establishing Zu-Bolton's two-week visit to your school, as it extends the amount of time you or NancyGene would have to search for any evidence of his having been in the area.
The school year was 1975-76 and Zu-Bolton was there in Spring of 1976......

That sounds reasonable.
It seems highly unlikely that Zu-Bolton was the "poet-in-residence," and no Carver High yearbooks have surfaced showing him as a member of the faculty.
He was in the area at the time, and may have visited Will's English class.
That would be difficult to confirm, but Zu-Bolton was known to have visited many high schools, and he was in the area at that time.
I think it safe to assume for now that Zu-Bolton was not the "poet-in-residence" at Carver, but that he probably did visit Will's class.
Barring any further evidence from Will (or other interested parties), let's all agree to leave it at the above.
Ahmos Zu-Bolton did come to Carver High in Columbus, Georgia in Spring of 1976 and was introduced to the English class as "poet in residence" by Dan Barfield, our teacher.
Since I don't yet have any evidence of this (except Dan Barfield's confirmation that it is true) I agree we should let the matter rest, for now.
;)
Yo.....

Good plan.....

"Does anyone else remember when The Everly Brothers performed in Columbus, Georgia at the Fair free show in 1969? I was there but nobody else I know was. Hard to believe now that such name acts would play at Golden Park, but they were there, as well as other name acts back in those days. I'm finding no record of this online... Gooding's Million Dolllar Midway put on a world class Fair back then.."
Again, where did you write this?

Debby M B: 13 years old and oh, so excited to see them! Fond memories!
Stephen M M: my brother got free tickets on stage with the Everly Brothers...he had a broken leg and was on crutches..
Sue M: I was a flight attendant for Delta and they were on the plane from Atlanta to Columbus. Very nice people!
Diane P C: I was there and saw them perform ❤️
Sandra R: Saw them and many others !
Michael D: I was there, it was probably the best free acts show I ever saw. I’m not sure 1969 is correct though. I thought it was a few years later than that.
Sue G: Yes and also came to Auditorium a few yrs before. My cousins paid for me and my sister to go
Peggy M: Yes I do in 1970. I was pregnant with my son and got hit in the head by part of the fireworks.
Susan T: Yes they did, I saw Johnny T. even talked to the Everly Brothers and got his autograph. They had some great shows back then
Debra M: I saw them at the Chattahoochee Valley Fair as it was called back then. Also saw other great performers there every year for free (mind you just the entrance fee to get into the fair)
Lisa H: I was there I saw them in 69
Victoria F: I was there!
I've always been a fan of theirs....
I remember it like it was yesterday....
Vanda G: I was there and got to meet them!!!
Danny D: I was there . Also saw Kenny Rogers at the fair.
Tammy M: I was very young but I remember seeing them too!
Tim N: I was there but they refused to sign autographs, I really like the Everly Brothers harmony but unfortunately that’s what I remember most.
Tom L: I remember it in 1971..or 1972
Kelly C: I remember because I was 7 and my Mama dragged me in there to see them. When you are 7 at the fair the last thing you want to do is go to a concert! Lol
Anita K: 🎶 I was 10 years old and I thought I would die when my Mom told me I was going to see them in person ❤️💯 I still listen to their music and I always think about that concert!!!!! Great memories ❣️
Wendell B: I was there, also saw George Jones at Fair.
Will Dockery: So glad a few others here remember when the Everly Brothers did the show here... it isn't listed anywhere on the internet, that I can find. :)
The remembrances are all over the place, and mostly from people who were under 10. The date was 1969--or much earlier or years later. The Everly Brothers signed autographs or refused to sign autographs. It's odd that so many people who were "there" also got to meet the Everly Brothers or even were on the stage with them!
I see that the Everly Brothers put on shows in Columbus, Georgia at least twice, once in the late 1950s, and at least once in the late 1960s/early 1970s, which is the show I attended.
"I wish they had gotten the Hagler Brothers to do a show..."
Hager brothers. It's pronounced with a long "A". Hagler is pronounced with a short "A"

The Hagler Brothers were big stars
So big you can't even remember their name properly.
Thanks for the correction, fake Conley.

To me the Everly Brothers were a hundred times more important than the Hager Brothers, true.
