Title

E Pluribus Unum - The Last Poets

Description

Excerpt from Genius where this poem resides: “E Pluribus Unum” is a spoken-word song with minimal instrumentation that explores the US Government, specifically, the dollar bill. The spoken-word nature of the song is similar to that of Gill-Scott Heron, as both have been cited as early influences of hip-hop and rap music. This record, released in 1972, featured Alafia Pudim (a.k.a. Jalaluddin Mansur Nuriddin) and Sulaiman El-Hadi. The Last Poets is the name of multiple African-American groups that came out of the Civil Rights Movement.
