We are delighted to mark Black History Month with a selection of poems by Black poets with close links to England, Scotland, the United States, the Caribbean and Africa. The poets include Nobel Prizewinners, poet laureates and performance poets, reflecting in different ways on their individual experience, their sense of the past and hope for the future.
