Angry Black Woman, poem in lockdown

COLLAGE ARTS have been working with the local black, asian and ethnic minority community for a long time, helping them find a voice.  We are asking a number of our artistic associates to share their creative outputs which shine a light on Black Lives Matter, from their experience and perspective.

ANGRY BLACK WOMAN is part of a series “We Matter: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” by Sandra Howell.  Recorded by Martina Laird, actor and diversity champion. Art by Damel Carayol.

Angry Black Woman is second of a trilogy of poems developed by Sandra Howell. She is a member of our community of writers at Collage Writing Room. Sandra honed her skills on the ‘Short Fiction Workshop’ with Kiare Ladner in Autumn 2019.  She read her flash fiction at our sharing event at McQueens Theatre in December 2019




Collage Arts have been awarded a grant from Arts Council England to work with many more ethnic minority women over the year. Part of Collage Community projects. Creative Futures: picking up the threads, is enabling Black, Asian, and ethnic minority women to create new work and material, process the challenges of lockdown, and weave these together into new interpretations and art pieces. The resulting pieces will be displayed digitally and physically in windows and empty spaces around Wood Green and Tottenham, Haringey.   If you would like to get involved in Collage Community, contact [email protected]
