In 2001 Malika Booker and Roger Robinson were young, black poets being overlooked by the poetry establishment, but serious about their work and dedicated to their craft. They invited other poets to join them around Malika’s kitchen table in Brixton every Friday night to inspire and encourage each other, share ideas and workshop poems.

Twenty years later, Malika’s Poetry Kitchen still meets on Friday nights and is celebrating two decades with an anniversary anthology, Too Young, Too Loud, Too Different. This diverse collective has nurtured some of the finest poets to emerge in the UK this century – join Courtney Conrad, Janett Plummer, Fahad Al-Amoudi, Be Manzini and Kareem Parkins-Brown for this special, Black History Month MPK showcase.
