The Last Poets: Transcending Toxic Times Album Stream

The Last Poets released Understand What Black Is last year after a 21-year hiatus and they have already followed up with the 2019 album Transcending Toxic Times. The trio of Abiodun Oyewole, Umar Bin Hassan and Baba Donn Babatunde continue to challenge the status quo of racism and America’s normalizing of oppression while celebrating love and self-expression. Ursula Rucker and Malik B join the poets for the 14-song set that really does transcend the lesser moments of American life.
