Tales of a Conduit City is a narrative poem written in the first-person.

Its aim is to draw parallels between 19th and 21st century Birmingham whilst highlighting prominent women of colour who have significantly contributed to it, the UK, and the world.

I have drawn from my fondness of Birmingham and added interesting historical knowledge about this city that I think many of its inhabitants won’t know. Whilst still creating a rhythmic flow that should carry readers and listeners through like the waters of the multiple canals.
