Five Lives

Saturday 15 February 2014, 7pm to 9pm

Peckham Library, 122 Peckham Hill Street, SE15 5JR

Join some of the most exciting talent on the UK poetry scene. Five Black British poets explore and celebrate love, life and their Caribbean and African heritage with power, humour and honesty.

Dorothea Smartt is a ‘Brit-born Bajan international’, her work typically bridges Britain and Barbados, effortlessly shuttling between local and global scenes as it weaves a diasporic web. She is the author of two poetry collections, Connecting Medium and Ship Shape.

Kadija Sesay has performed around the world. Her poetry collection Irki was published in 2013 which she toured in the UK, USA, Caribbean and West Africa. She was recently awarded an Arts Council Grant to work on her second poetry collection, The Modern Pan Africanist’s Journey.

As well as her own acclaimed solo work Malika founded the writers’ collective Malika’s Kitchen in 2000. It aims to support “multicultural writers in the development of their craft.”
