It takes a lot of confidence to be this ridiculous.
I’ve released the video to my latest poem, ‘Many’. The piece is written, performed and directed by me and filmed and edited by award-winning videographer (and one of my long-term collaborators), Troy James Aidoo.
Through haunting and emotive visuals, we have brought my poem to life, centring the ongoing chaos in global society and our own communities, from the ceaseless murders of unarmed black people in USA and the UK, to the bombing of sacred Black Churches in parts of America, as well as the ongoing migrant crisis of 2015.
‘Many’ is one of the lead poems in my upcoming collection of poetry, due to be released in May 2016.
I’ll be on Roundhouse Radio this afternoon on the Almass Badat show from 4pm to 6pm discussing the release and wat else I’ve been up to, alongside Prisca Moyesa.
Watch, share, and stay woke.
