Checking Out Me History – John Agard


This is, by far, the favourite poem I teach in school. It is always important – no matter how old you are – to continue seeking knowledge. This poem highlights to all the children that are not White-British in the school that it is their responsibility to do their own research on their history, and carve their own identity. A beautiful poem written and read by John Agard, a Guyanese/Scottish writer, famous for his ‘Half Caste’ poem.

Have an empowering day, beautiful people,
