Mojo - 09/01/2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "[This] beautifully shot film by French director Claude Santiago tells their story through the words of original Poets, recounting their roots in the civil rights movement and Harlem writers workshops..."
Hip-hop pioneers The Last Poets reunite in this live concert at the 2008 Banlieues Bleues Festival in Paris. In late-'60s Harlem, these writers united to form the group that fused their spoken-word poetry with jazz and funk. Though rap wouldn't emerge for another decade, The Last Poets' style would influence generations to come with their political words set to music.
