The poetry and literature of this book underpins the experience and the CARGO movement. The resultant body of work, inspires hope, encouragement, and empowerment by providing a much-needed narrative that sets out the accomplishments of a people with a legacy of enslavement, who overcame the pervasive obstacles of racism. When Lawrence reflects on growing up in Bristol in the ‘70s and ‘80s, he feels that this exclusion and marginalisation is due to history being taught from a solely European perspective, and that this has devalued other cultures and achievements, especially those of African communities impacted by slavery.
