Felipe Luciano: A Man You Need To Know

March 3, 2010

Felipe Luciano is OLD New York. I’m talking real melting pot so hot it causes riots and gang wars New York. Out of all of that Luciano gained a strong sense of self and used himself to help the people of his community. As a chairman of the Young Lords Felipe Luciano took to the streets and mobilized his people to become a political force. He was an original Last Poet and his poetry is the stuff of legends. One of the reasons I love this man is he is all about Black and Latino love (the way it should be).

Here is one of my favorite pieces from the man, and one that he’s most famous for.
