The Last Poets Sit In For Iggy Pop - 6 Music 19th October 2018

THE LAST POETS SIT IN FOR IGGY POP - 6 MUSIC 19.10.18 (320kbs-m4a/258mb/1hr52mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 19th October 2018


50 years ago this year, the founding members of the Last Poets stood together in Mount Morris park - now Marcus Garvey park - in Harlem and uttered their first poems in public. They commemorated what would have been the 43rd birthday of Malcolm X, who had been killed three years earlier. The forefathers of hip hop present their Black Power Playlist tonight on 6 Music as part of Black Power Season.

Black Power Season on 6 Music, 1Xtra and 5Live, marks 50 years since Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their fists in the Black Power salute at the 1968 Mexico Olympics.
