When Lemn Sissay’s The Fire People was published in 1998 it brought a group of talented Black British poets to public attention. 24 years on it is being republished. Kayo Chingonyi’s anthology More Fiya nods to the importance of Sissay’s original work, in what he describes as his ‘dream mixtape’ of work by 35 Black British poets. Sissay and Chingonyi are joined by poets Malika Booker and Salena Godden to celebrate the power of both books.
