In Conversation: Linton Kwesi Johnson, Caryl Phillips

As part of Black History Month, poet and political activist Linton Kwesi Johnson joins Caryl Phillips, novelist and academic, in conversation. Both writers have inspired generations with thoughtful and incisive writing looking at notions of identity. Johnson’s rhythm-infused lyrics and Phillips’s concise prose explore racial oppression and question what it means to belong. Chaired by cultural journalist and broadcaster Maya Jaggi.
