Searching for Black Britain: Roger Robinson and Johny Pitts at Manchester literature festival

entry picture

Last year TS Eliot prize-winning poet Roger Robinson and acclaimed photographer Johny Pitts rented a Mini Cooper and followed the coast clockwise in search of Black Britain. Johny photographed black British people loving, laughing, hanging out with friends and family, commuting, working, and protesting. In response, Roger wrote poems and essays about light, nature, music, activism, living in a society that rejects you, and black joy. The pair will be appearing at Manchester Poetry Library as part of Manchester literature festival to celebrate Johny's photographs and Roger's new poems, collected in Home Is Not A Place. The event is on Monday 17 October at 7pm. More details
