“I have crossed an ocean / I have lost my tongue”
This programme features poetry which protested against slavery, from across continents and generations. From Phillis Wheatley, the first African American woman to publish a book, to abolitionist campaigners, including Anna Letitia Barbauld and Hannah More, to more recent work exploring the cultural legacy of slavery by Langston Hughes, Margaret Walker and James Berry.
