NPF & NTU Curated and Created Present: Linton Kwesi Johnson, Jamie Thrasivoulou & Bridie Squires
Saturday 4 May, 7.30pm - 10.30pm
Metronome, Huntingdon Street, NG1 1AP
The first black poet to be published in Penguin Modern Classics, Linton Kwesi Johnson’s work has always been political, vital and necessary, drawing attention to topics like systemic racism, police abuse and National Front attacks, calling for
government, institutions and society to be held to account.
His performances are gripping and true to a quote he gave in a 2008 interview.
“Writing was a political act and poetry was a cultural weapon”
