Johnson's poetry has served not only as the voice of the Windrush generation, but as a touchstone for the generations of poets that came after.
The event is chaired by Robin Denselow, the Guardian's world critic, a journalist and broadcaster who specialises in both music and politics. He has travelled widely, reporting for BBC Newsnight and radio programmes, and is the author of When The Music's Over, a history of political pop.
For ages 14+.
