We continue to celebrate Black poets with six poems included in October’s Black History Month leaflet, now available free at London tube stations – poems by Jamaican poet laureate Lorna Goodison, Barbadian Kamau Brathwaite, James Berry, who was part of the Windrush generation who helped to rebuild Britain after the war, Ghanaian Kwame Dawes, Nigerian Niyi Osundare and a new voice in our programme, Nick Makoha, born in Uganda.
To mark Armistice Day, we are reprinting war poems displayed from 2014-2018 to commemorate the First World War, and touching on wars from the earliest times to the present.
We follow the war poems with some more ‘favourites’ from earlier sets.
