We are delighted to mark Black History Month with a selection of poems by Black poets with close links to England, Scotland, North America, the Caribbean and Africa. The poets include Nobel Prizewinners, poet laureates and performance artists, all reflecting in different ways on their individual experience.
All the poems in this collection have been featured on London tube trains, reaching an estimated three million daily travellers in this most international of cities.
