Description

DSH ENTERTAINMENT, INC. in association with The A.D.H. Foundation, Inc. Presents: The 2017-18, Chicago, IL. Spoken Word Poetry Series. On April 28, 2017, the first installment of the poetry series will feature: "THE LAST POETS" and they will perform in The DuSable Museum, 740 E. 56th PL., Chicago, IL. 60637, the world famous poets who were a part of the 1960's and early 1970's Black Power Movement, and who are credited with being the "Godfathers" of the "Hip Hop" music. "The Last Poets" are coming to Chicago, IL. to perform some of their most memorable recorded poetry.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the show starts at 7:00 pm.

An excerpt from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: The Last Poets have been cited as one of the earliest influences on hip-hop music. Critic Jason Ankeny wrote, "With their politically charged raps, taut rhythms, and dedication to raising African-American consciousness, the Last Poets almost single-handedly laid the groundwork for the emergence of hip-hop."[2] The British music magazineNME stated, "Serious spokesmen like Gil Scott-Heron, Gary Byrd, and the Last Poets paved the way for the many socially committed Black [emcees] a decade later."[3]

"The Last Poets" will perform some of their recorded poems such as: "Jones Comin' Down," Just Because," "This Is Madness," "When The Revolution Comes," "On The Subway," etc.
