"Last Man Out" is the name of a childhood game played by the African American poet/playwright growing up in a mixed-race neighborhood in Seattle. The Last man out in the game was called a n***** baby. While living in LA in the 1960s he witnessed an affluent African American motorist being pulled over by LA cops apparently for no reason other than being Black in Beverly Hills. He wrote this play over the next decade which eventually became "Driving While Black in Beverly Hills" It premiered to good reviews at the Matrix Theatre in 2001 and starred Felton Perry. Whil Jenkins has had other poetry books and plays published this one apparently has not been published.
