Summary
The Last Poets were born on May 19, 1968, at a birthday celebration for Malcolm X, and became the revolutionary force for many African Americans, expressing the plight of black people in their music. In nearly 50 poems, their lyrics advocate revolution through economic empowerment, self-love, personal growth and spiritual kinship. Through it all, The Last Poets have successfully managed to create light with words, power with music and substance with soul. Photos
