Black History Month: Poetry Workshop with Zita Holbourne – 13th October 2022
Join multi-award winning poet, writer, artist and human rights campaigner Zita Holbourne for a poetry workshop. An opportunity to hear a selection of poems from Zita’s book Striving for Equality, Freedom and Justice – Embracing Roots Culture Identity. Zita is a wordsmith who documents the struggles and achievements of the African diaspora from the Haitian Revolution to Black Lives Matter through spoken word and rhyme.
Zita has performed poetry to international audiences and in the UK performed on diverse platforms from Glastonbury to the Houses of Parliament, former resident poet of Nu Whirled Voyces and a finalist of Manorlogz Xtreme Spoken Word Contest and is a contributor to numerous poetry anthologies including New Daughters of Africa. Reflect on what you have heard and draw inspiration to document your story through poetry. Poetry can heal, educate, inspire and challenge. Poetry can be an act of self-care. It can also be a powerful way of challenging racism and other forms of discrimination and raising cultural awareness.
Poetry readings followed by Q&A. Then why not go away and write your own.
