AN AUDIENCE WITH THE LAST POETS
Conversation. Music. Poetry.
Godfathers of hip hop, spoken word legends and brilliant raconteurs The Last Poets are in town for a rare UK appearance. Grown from the civil rights movement of the late 60s, they are known for politically charged raps and taut rhythms, addressing social issues and raising African American consciousness. Join them for an evening of conversation, questions from the audience, and electrifying live performance, hosted by Jumoké Fashola.
