VIDEO: Proud to Be Poem - Written and Performed by Peace

Walsall-based poet Peace has written and performed a 'Proud to Be' poem exclusively for Walsall for All as part of this year's Black History Month celebrations.

Poem transcript

Each year throughout this month we celebrate

Embracing each with pride and dignity

The very wonder of Black History

And this in unity we'll contemplate.

From north to south,

from east to west we rise,

To share appraise across the British Isles,

A journey which immeasurable in miles

Remains in truth - incalculable in size.

A journey one could trace across the ages

That leads us from, some say, the dawn of time,

To heights beyond the highest mountain climb.
