Malcolm X 90th Birthday Liberation Concert featuring The Last Poets
Honor the 90th birthday of Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El Shabazz) with this special concert featuring performances by Grammy Award-nominated artists The Last Poets, 3rd Eye Open Collective, youth performances, and a special Malcolm X display by the Black History 101 Mobile Museum. Known as "The Godfathers of Hip Hop," The Last Poets have performed with Common, Dead Prez, Kayne West, Pharaoh Sanders, and many others. Their spoken word albums preceded political projects such as Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On," and foreshadowed the work of hard-hitting rap groups like Public Enemy and Dead Prez.
Tickets for the Malcolm X 90th Birthday Liberation Concert are $20 and are available online at brownpapertickets.com.
The Last Poets will sign copies of their CDs following the concert. For more information call (313) 494-5800.
