An Evening of Poetry and Music

Koleka Putuma
Sat 29 June 2019,
20:00-23:00
Malcolm X Centre
Price: £6

Poetry is memory. Poetry is now. Poetry is knowledge. Poetry is us. Immerse yourself in the words of critically acclaimed poets as we explore the multiple ways that poetry helps us to document and to be.

An evening of poetry with Johannesburg-based Koleka Putuma (pictured), whose debut poetry collection Collective Amnesia has been reprinted 9 times, the 2018 Young Laureate for London Momtaza Mehri, 2017 Ted Hughes Award-winner Jay Bernard, 2015 Brunel International African Poetry Prize-winner Nick Makoha and Malaika Kegode, director of Bristol’s own Milk Poetry.  Join us in exploring the self as vast and intimate, and poetry as an instrument of delight and witness.

Africa Writes – Bristol 2019 is brought to you by the Royal African Society and Saseni!, and supported by Arts Council England, the Bristol Cultural Development Partnership, University of Bristol and University of Exeter. This event is in partnership with the Centre for Black Humanities.
