AN EVENING OF EDUTAINMENT!
An evening of ‘Edutainment’ through a series of presentations, with song, discussion, open mic, performance poetry, and competitions.
At the origin of most Black British literature and publishing was the motivation of necessity. Black writing was a means of dealing with the Black experience of migration to Britain, whether forced or voluntary. It tells us a lot about what people who came from the Caribbean and Africa went through, how they were affected, and how, while seeking ways to break through the barriers they faced, they were able to make significant contributions to British life.
