Founder of the term Dub-Poetry, the legendary poet and social activist Linton Kwesi-Johnson will be performing his unique mix of storytelling and spoken word here at HowTheLightGetsIn. Linton is only the second living poet and the first black poet to have work included in Penguin’s Modern Classics series. A member of the Black Panthers and the poetry editor of political magazine Race Today, Linton uses his platform to introduce important ideas and new voices to the British public. Political and powerful, this is one you can't afford to miss.
