Benjamin Zephaniah at the Trinity Centre

The Trinity Centre was pleased to welcome iconic poet Benjamin Zephaniah through our doors today as part of a national research tour into the history of black radical poetry in the UK. Writers and activists drawn from the local community attended a meeting to share ideas and sources with Benjamin.

The meeting was coordinated by writer and literary consultant Kadija George (of Peepal Tree Press), in partnership with Trinity's Project Coordinator Dr Edson Burton, through the Trinity Community Initiative. Trinity has been a base for community arts and creativity since the 1970s and the meeting served as a homecoming for Benjamin, as he recalled performing here in the Centre's early years as a venue.

This was an exploratory meeting to discover what information is available within Bristol. The project is ongoing and we may hear soon of a call for more sources to support Benjamin in his quest to compile a comprehensive anthology.
