The Poetry Archive – Obsidian Collection

A quick mention today for the Poetry Archives collaboration with the Obsidian Foundation

The collection is a collaboration which aims to recognise the importance of the inspirations, stories and social and cultural commentary that British Black Poets bring to the UK’s poetry landscape. All the poems featured in this collection have been selected by the poets themselves.


It’s a permanent feature of the site, and one that those behind the Archive are adding to the collection on an ongoing basis – Malika Booker, Momtaza Mehri and Yomi Sede being the latest.

Here’s a link to Malika Booker reading her poem In Memory of Herbert Morris
