“Literature Can Foster And Express Our Shared Humanity”: Bernardine Evaristo On The Importance Of Inclusive Publishing

Written by Bernardine Evaristo for British Vogue on Saturday, June 6th, 2020

Roger’s poetry collection is exactly the kind of book we need out there as British society is forced to register the prevailing inequalities on these shores through the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Roger’s poems range from the tragedy of Grenfell Tower to the premature birth of his son. Through sharing his interior self as an individual black British man with Caribbean origins, we connect to his humanity and appreciate his vulnerabilities, vision, experiences, sensitivities and points of view.
