The powers that be seem to have come to the almost unanimous decision that October is the one month of the year when the passion of black poets is allowed to put food on

the table!


Black history is such a rich vein of inspiration for poetry,

achievement blended with tragedy, passion with pathos,

so it is unsurprising that the words of poets from the Diaspora

are often a first point of contact when trying to open young minds

to the subject.


The CCPress offers workshops, performances and assemblies

looking both at contemporary issues for Black people, but an

insight into the history that lies beneath them.

Workshops can be tailored to the specific needs of organisations

or educational establishments and are delivered by CRB checked,

professionally trained performers and facilitators.
