Celebrate Wha? Ten Black British Poets from the Midlands

by Eric Doumerc and Roy McFarlane (Editors)
£7.95   paperback  Smokestack Books (2011)

Celebrate Wha? Ten Black British Poets from the Midlands by Eric Doumerc and Roy McFarlane (Editors) Celebrate Wha? is a book of many voices. It is a book of questions and answers. It is an anthology of poems about identity and race, curried goat 'n' rice.
 
Dreadlock Alien, Sue Brown, Marcia Calame, Evoke, Martin Glynn, Michelle Hubbard, Kokumo, Roy McFarlane, Chester Morrison and Moqapi Selassie explore what it means to be black and British and from the West Midlands.
 
This is the English language in a Caribbean coat, Auden in a Creole accent, writing with a reggae rhythm. Celebrate Wha? is poetry as Wordsworth said it should be 'the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings'. Mixing dub, grime and performance poetry, anger and laughter, politics and music, these ten poets know what they want to say and know how to say it.
