George the Poet performs a spoken-word poem about an African work of art – a Benin bronze plaque – in the British Museum's Africa Gallery.

George has taken up our Huge History Lesson challenge to investigate and get inspired by a museum object. George’s poem tells the story of the Benin bronzes, a series of plaques depicting the Benin court following Europe’s first contact with West Africa in the 15th century.
