This one is all about The Last Poets, who introduced everyone to rapping in the mid 60’s, accompanied by civil rights radicals like Malcolm X, and the whole aura of black radical revolutionary lyrics and speeches that scared us all in that short but intense era of black political emergence. Vietnam underlies much of this cultural resentment and M.L.K decries our war in Vietnam in one of the best, now forgotten speeches he ever gave.
