Museumand is the National Caribbean Heritage Museum, a social history and community museum celebrating and commemorating the Caribbean contribution to the UK. They are a museum “without walls”, which connects with communities across the UK, through art, music, performance and more.
To celebrate Black History Month, Museumand has shared with us two poignant and powerful poems titled ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘I Can’t Breathe’. They are written and performed by Winston Lindsay, AKA Mayor Lindsay, for Museumand. Listen below.
