Jalal Mansur Nuriddin
.. was one of the seven founding members of The Last Poets, who first hit most people's consciousness when their song 'Wake Up Niggers' was used as part of a soundtrack in Mick Jagger's debut film "Performance".
The Last Poets were formed in Harlem in 1968 to try and make some sense out of the legacy of slavery inherited from America and were faced with the enormous task of defining and redefining the true meaning of their existence in America, from the beginning to the present and beyond (er).
