Overview

Another Crossing tells the stories of an individual life, of a family, of the communities of Chapeltown and Harehills, and of crucial moments in the making of Leeds as a place where cultures meet. In poetry that sings from the page, the collection re-creates places that have been swept away by time, like the house on 56 Cowper Street where Kadijah Ibrahiim’s Jamaican grandmother lived, where there was black pride and Victorian respectability, where there were aunts who gave the young girl a cultural education, where her grandfather entertained his friends in the sanctum of the West Indian front room. Or there was her mother’s house on Gathorne Mount, a place that moved to the looser beat of reggae, where there was strict discipline, love, good food—and blues parties in the cellar. The poems tell of the days when youths were excluded from school for growing their locks, of the bonfire night riots, police harassment, and overt racism. But they were also the days when black people in Leeds were creating their own culture in music, dance, and dress—shaped by influences from the Caribbean, from Black American music, and from British punk, into something unique. In rhythms that draw from the music being celebrated, with an unerring eye for the details of style that catch a moment, Another Crossing explores the recent past to ask questions about the present: Where has that political fire gone? Where are the energies that danced to a political beat?
