Una Marson (1905-1965) was a pioneer Jamaican feminist, poet, playwright and social activist. A black Jamaican woman, from the middle class and of strict Baptist upbringing, Marson emigrated to work in London in 1932, producing plays, poems and programs for the BBC during World War II. She was the epitome of a black political artist.
Omg this could be such a great poetry activity! Rip out pages from an old novel (pick them up cheap at used book stores) and have the students make a poem out of the words going down the page!!! Creative and fun
