Black Radical: a Book of Black British poetry that defines struggle

Benjamin Zephaniah and Kadija (George) Sesay are working on Black Radical: a Book of Black British poetry that defines our struggle, a new anthology.

They are looking for books, pamphlets, newsletters and newspapers and any ephemera that includes poetry in / on it written by those who define themselves as Black British (including people of Asian descent) born in or who migrated to Britain.

They say, "Please send copies (in any format) in the first instance with relevant details of where and when it was first published, copyright details and any other relevant details if you have that information and one of our team will follow through with you.

"If you can make any suggestions of other people we should follow up with, and possible places to source material, we’d appreciate it.

"Please feel free to share this call out. We already have a small team working on it but we don't want to miss out poems or people!

"If you are not sure if material that you have, or know of is of interest, please contact us or send it in and we will be in touch.

"Please note: This is not a call for submissions for new work. For all queries or material relating to this project please send it to the email address:

"Thank you."
