If you’re planning on being in or near the D.C. area this weekend then you may want to drop by popular eatery Bus Boys and Poets on Sunday, May 19th for an epic event!
Team Triumphant Presents: “The Last Poets Block Party!” A tribute to The Last Poets. The first annual Last Poets Block Party will honor and commemorate the inception of the legendary spoken word group, The Last Poets who formed fifty years ago in Harlem, New York.
