The Last Poets

“[The Last Poets] remain so relevant: race remains one of the most urgent matters of our time. Not only in America, where a new generation is fighting racism and police violence, but also in Europe, where xenophobia and racism have become more open, more common. Ultimately, the story of the Last Poets is about human resilience and beauty’s sustaining power.”

– Christine Otten, “The Last Poets: America in poetry from Black Power to Black Lives Matter” The Guardian – 11/21/16
