Paid Event — Cultural Events
Quay Words: Home Is Not A Place


Join us at Quay Words to welcome acclaimed poet Roger Robinson and award-winning author and photographer Johny Pitts as they ask:

What is it like to be black in Britain today, particularly if you live outside of the urban, metropolitan centres?

Roger and Johny joined forces to explore this issue in their stunning new book, Home Is Not A Place. Featuring photographs, poetry and essays, it is a visual poem reflecting on the complexity, strength and resilience of Black Britain. In their journey around the UK, the writers uncover hidden stories of black people living in the unlikeliest of places, from rundown seaside resorts to rural beach locations. Come and hear these tales, which echo across centuries of the black experience, transforming and illuminating the history of Britain.

Co-produced by Speaking Volumes, Sprung Sultan and Coastal Carolina University, this talk has been organised by Literature Works as part of their Quay Words programme.
