Roger is co-founder of both Spoke Lab and the international writing collective Malika’s Poetry Kitchen. Too often, that is where the history told about Black Britain begins and ends – but Robinson and Pitts continued out of London, following the coast clockwise through Margate to Land’s End, Bristol to Blackpool, Glasgow to John O’Groats and Scarborough to Southend on Sea. Johny Pitts is the curator of the ENAR (European Network Against Racism) award-winning online journal ‘Afropean’ and the author of ‘Afropean: Notes From Black Europe’. S. Eliot Poetry Prize-winning text, this contains eye/mind-opening ekphrastic pieces which ponder the representation of Blackness in Art; from Turner to Sidibé.This is a book I have been waiting for' Caleb Azumah Nelson, Costa Book Award-winning author of Open Water ' Rich and evocative . When I got to Windhoek and it was chilly, I went to Luanda the next day, and I felt at home, not because I had a home there, but because it was warm, and I associate warmth with home. He currently presents Open Book for BBC Radio 4 and a forthcoming Afropean podcast funded by a grant from the National Geographic Society. Home Is Not a Place is the spectacular result of the journey they documented: a free-form composition of photography, poetry and essays that offers a book-length reflection upon Black Britishness - its complexity, strength and resilience - at the start of a new decade.

Home is knowing we always have somewhere to run to, and we’ll be just fine, because home is within us. Pitts invites you to come in, take a seat and feel right at home - to experience what home means to him - whether you’re flicking through family photo albums, chatting and sharing ideas, or listening to pirate radio playlists from Pitts’ 1980s youth. The structures we often find ourselves in when we are “at home” aren’t what make home home, it’s how we feel when we are there that make it so. For while roots are important and comforting, they do not always represent home, we aren’t meant to be rooted, we are not trees.Find your true home, build your life around it and don’t settle for anything less than the life you feel you were meant to live.

The stories captured in the film and the book echo across centuries of the black experience, transforming and illuminating the history of Britain. Realised as I was reading this that I’d seen the accompanying exhibition at the Photographers Gallery. Late last year, I spent sometime in the United States of America, during that time, I went to Puerto Rico for a weekend. We are home to groundbreaking ideas and revolutions, we are home to comfort and peace — be it other people’s or our own.

Home is with the other half of your soul, the person who shares in your grief and helps you carry the burden of loss.
