Rewriting the North: Amina Atiq

Amina Atiq is a Yemeni-Scouse poet, community activist and performance artist. Reflecting on her dual identity, Atiq meets us in her home city of Liverpool and takes us to the alleyways and corner shops of her childhood. She performs her poem “L8 Streets Die With Me” along the way, and touches on moments in Liverpool's recent history including the Toxteth riots.
