Join us for an extraordinary evening of poetry. Visionary American poet Patricia Smith is the author of eight books of poetry. Her recent collection, Incendiary Art, is a sequence of poems which focus on the 1955 murder of Emmett Till, which serves as a backdrop for the passionate and lyrically inventive chronicling of present-day violence against African American men and its devastating impact on families and a nation. Patricia will be supported by Manchester-based writer and performance artist Keisha Thompson, whose collection Lunar explores the Black British experience, masculinity and mental health.
