Harlem 1968, a group of young poets get together and found the Last Poets. With jazz or funk as a backdrop, percussions rolling and words shooting out like bursts of machine-gun fire, the group denounces the oppression of African-Americans, while painting a devastating yet humorous picture of life in the ghetto. Nearly forty years after their separation, the members of this legendary group - the founding fathers of today's hip hop, rap and slam - come together in Paris for a one-time concert at the 2008 Banlieues Bleues festival. The Last Poets are Abiodun Oyewole, Dahveed Nelson, Felipe Luciano, Jalal Mansur Nuriddin, Umar Bin Hassan, and Babatunde.
