What is it like to be black in Britain today, particularly if you live outside of the urban, metropolitan centres?

Featuring photographs, poetry and essays, it is a visual poem reflecting on the complexity, strength and resilience of Black Britain.
In their journey around the UK, the writers uncover hidden stories of black people living in the unlikeliest of places, from rundown seaside resorts to rural beach locations. Come and hear these tales, which echo across centuries of the black experience, transforming and illuminating the history of Britain.
