REAL TALK

Shadow People speak out …

by Martin Glynn

REAL TALK: Shadow People speak out is a collection of monologues which has been a long time in the making.  For many years Martin Glynn has worked in prisons, engaged with the disaffected sections of the community, and has been through his own rite of passage. Throughout his journey as a writer and criminologist he has encountered many amazing people whose stories have gone with them to their grave, have not been told, been ignored, or have been too uncomfortable for many to hear.

CELEBRATE WHA?

Ten Black British Poets from the West Midlands Edited by Eric Doumerc and Roy McFarlane (Birmingham Poet Laureate 2011) 

CELEBRATE WHA? is an anthology of poems about identity and race with curry goat ‘n’ rice.  Ten poets – Dreadlock Alien, Sue Brown, Marcia Calame, Evoke, Martin Glynn, Michelle Hubbard, Kokumo, Roy McFarlane, Chester Morrison and Moqapi Selassie – explore what it means to be black and British and from the West Midlands.  This is the English language in a Caribbean coat, Auden in a Creole accent.  CELEBRATE WHA? celebrates writing with a reggae rhythm, born out of a heady mixture of dub, grime and performance poetry, politics and music, anger and laughter.   This anthology is dedicated to Birmingham’s Black poets – long overdue.  To buy and read more about the anthology, check it out here…

My bredrin BROTHA CHAZ WALKER (dubbed “The High-Priest of Hip-Hop”community activist and teacher), from outta Oakland California featured in issue 14, has been on the streets of his home town mingling with peaceful protesters.  They are upset that the billions of dollars in U.S. bank bailouts doled out during the recession, has allowed banks to resume earning huge profits while average Americans have had scant relief from high unemployment and job insecurity.  They also believe the richest 1 per-cent of Americans do not pay their fair share in taxes.  Sounds familiar don’t it?  BROTHA CHAZ has crafted a tune followed by a brief commentary to celebrate the experience; have a listen here…
