"Understand What Black Is" by The Last Poets is an album that matters - not just musically, but as a record of the times we're living in. The Last Poets are weathervanes, warning of the future and past sins in poems that are indivisible from the rhythms they are voiced on. Their work is a test of our own courage - because are you ready to receive what they're saying?
Think warriors reporting from the battlefield
On the fairness of femininity
Just as a painter uses pigments as his medium to capture a worldly essence, KSsense employs the celebration of a woman’s body in capturing aspects of our tangible and intangible world. KSsense divides the themes of this album. With sexuality and boy positivity, the significance of the individual is catered to. With colorism, racism, and identity, social issues, the collective is addressed.
