Directed by Herbert Danska | 1970

Part music video, part black liberation consciousness-raiser, Right On! features the original lineup of virtuoso spoken word artists/proto-rappers the Last Poets—one of the most politically radical groups of the era—performing on the streets, rooftops, and fire escapes of Harlem. Almost impossible to see for decades, this is both a vital document of the evolution of hip-hop and a time capsule of early 1970s black revolutionary thought.
