Born in the wake of the civil rights movement in the USA, The Last Poets perform appropriate social-political lyrics to the beat of the drum. The Last Poets made a glorious and relevant return with their first album in over 20 years, ‘Understand What Black Is’. Produced by Ben Lamdin (Nostaglia 77) and Brighton legend Prince Fatty, ‘Understand What Black Is’ is a ten-track album which speaks of a revolutionary fire and struggle defined by both race and identity, that has never sounded more relevant.
“Black is humanity, That beautiful chord
On a twelve string guitar, That makes you smile
That offers comfort, In turbulent times.”
