Margaret Busby’s Desert Island Discs

Margaret Busby shared the soundtrack of her life with Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs.

Described by novelist Zadie Smith as ‘a cheerleader, instigator and celebrator of Black arts for the past 50 years, shouting about us from the rooftops…’, part of Margaret’s very significant contribution to the publishing world has been two monumental anthologies, Daughters of Africa (1992) and New Daughters of Africa (2019).
