Five Birmingham Poets

Five Birmingham Poets

Five Birmingham Poets is a collection of poems by and interviews with five Birmingham-based Black British poets (Leon Blades, Sue Brown, Martin Glynn, Roi Kwabena and Moqapi Selassie). The book examines the influence of the Caribbean oral tradition (reggae, calypso, storytelling) on Black British performance poetry.
This book was published by Raka Books, the late Roi Kwabena’s publishing imprint.
