Martin Luther King

I received two commissions on Martin Luther King to celebrate what became known as his “I have a dream speech”. . I also read the full speech to at The first Freedom Festival in Hull City. The first commission was with Jazz Musician Denys Baptiste. I wrote a suite of poems which were put to music for his “Let Freedom Reign” tour. Here is the first poem of that collective.

The second commission was for Manchester Literature Festival. This resulted in two poems. They are “Belong” and “Open Up”.
