Poet Dauda Ladejobi along with guest poets host an interactive evening of poetry celebrating Black writers.

Join us for a thrilling evening filled with some of London’s rising stars in poetry. We have Tanaka, Gboyega Odubanjo, Denize Ledeatte, Ehinaaya Destiny and Desree sharing their works and works of those they admire. This will be an exciting night of poetry celebrating black art, culture and people.

The poets will each have 15 minutes, in which they will be sharing their own catalogue of poems and, as this is a period of remembering, learning and celebrating, they will be sharing some of their favourite works from other black poets.

We will then open the floor up for an open mic so anyone in attendance can share any of their own or another’s poets work.

Part 1: Guest poets will be reading their own contemporary poetry along with historical works.

Part 2: Open Mic where participants are encouraged to share their own poetry, celebrating Black Culture and those exploring what it means to be black today. If you don’t write poetry and want to join in, perhaps bring along your favourite poem on this subject to share.

Once you have signed up for this session you will receive an email confirmation containing instructions and guidance on how to set up and join the live session.
