Caribbean Roots

Black British and Caribbean Poets Read Their Own Work
Caribbean Roots brings together recordings of ten Black British and Caribbean poets. The selections represent a range of experiences, emotions, styles, and influences, and they reflect both the culture of the Caribbean and life in Britain. The featured poets include Linton Kwesi Johnson, Jean ‘Binta’ Breeze, David Dabydeen, James Berry, John Agard, Amryl Johnson, E. A. Markham, Michael Smith, and Benjamin Zephaniah, all reading their own work in a mixture of studio recordings and electrifying live performances. This two-disc set will be essential for anyone interested in black writing and poetry in performance in Britain today.
