22 June marks Windrush Day. To commemorate it and to celebrate the work of Caribbean poets, The Poetry Society will be sharing poems by poets of the Windrush generation from the Poems on the Underground collection on Twitter throughout the day.
Poems on the Underground has been offering poetry to London’s tube travellers since 1986. The collection features verses new and old, familiar and unfamiliar, serious and comic, which have entertained millions of commuters during their journeys on London’s Underground, inspiring similar programmes across the world.
