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 60�s, 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 Jumok� Fashola.
What would you ask them? #askTLP #TheLastPoets
