Inua Ellams & Yomi Sode

Two electrifying performers, Inua Ellams and Yomi Sode return to MLF to share work from their acclaimed poetry collections.

Both Inua’s The Actual and Yomi’s Manorism take aim at the legacies of the British Empire – racism, classism, toxic masculinity and trauma. Woven with references to white cultural figures from Shakespeare to Caravaggio and sharp critiques of the likes of Piers Morgan, they ask what it means to live as a Black man in Britain today. Alongside his poetry, Inua will give a sneak preview of his narrative, funny, emotive forthcoming The Actual Essays.

Hosted by Keisha Thompson, poet and Artistic Director of Contact.
