black males: the poet, an elder and veteran of final century's civil rights circulate; and a anonymous adolescence, swaggering and beltless, seduced by way of guns-and-gangs and costly autos, and without end unique through police. they're brothers by way of the color in their pores and skin, neighbours within the comparable “crib,” but separated by means of a life of event. Invoking thoughts of his own encounters with leaders like Malcolm X, Stokely Carmichael and Amiri Baraka, the poet berates his inheritor for shedding the torch, and regrets his personal failure to guard, motivate and communicate out at the younger man's behalf. within the culture of Bob Marley's “Redemption Song,” on your Crib is a lyrical plea, either indictment and lamentation, and a strong account of the continuing fight for racial equality.
