Margaret Busby talks to Writers Mosaic

Margaret Busby CBE talks to the director Burt Caesar for Writers Mosaic about her daring beginnings as Britain’s first black female publisher in the 1960s.

Throughout her extraordinary career, Margaret has championed unknown authors and giants such as CLR James, whose work might have been forgotten but for her intervention.

Her two international anthologies, Daughters of Africa (1992) and New Daughters of Africa (2019), each featuring 200 writers, are widely regarded as monumental achievements that have changed the literary landscape.
