Writing on the Wall and Positive Vibration are proud to present Benjamin Zephaniah & The Revolutionary Minds. Pioneering dub poet, writer, social commentator and music maker Benjamin Zephaniah has teamed up with renowned producer & engineer, 'The Sea', to create the incredibly timely album (and band) - 'Revolutionary Minds'.

On Saturday 21st October, we get to hear this powerful new dub reggae album, which tackles the indigestible topic of the world we live in today - from political & economic corruption and global warming to rampant racism and fascist patriarchy.

Amid this chaos, 'Revolutionary Minds' is the soundtrack for the modern revolutionist. It will make you feel empowered, hopeful, galvanised to make a difference and make you dance: it’s a dub thing.

This highlight event is part of Writing on the Wall's Black History Month mini Festival with further details about upcoming debates and discussions to follow.

Ten Years on the Parish - Available to buy online


George Garrett’s autobiographical work Ten Years On The Parish, published here in full for the first time since it was written in the late 1930s, shines a light on the hardships and poverty endured by many in the years between the wars. Garrett was a merchant seaman, writer, playwright and radical activist, who was central to working class politics and culture in the 1920s and 30s in Liverpool and beyond. He travelled the world, wrote a series of documentary reports about poverty and struggle in the 1920s and 30s, three plays influenced by the new realism of Eugene O’Neill, and a series of short stories, which led George Orwell, who met him while researching The Road to Wigan Pier, to say he was ‘very greatly impressed by Garrett’. In the late 1930s he was a founder member of Liverpool’s Unity Theatre.
