New Daughters of Africa at the Bernie Grants Arts Centre


New Daughters of Africa, Margaret Busby’s major new global anthology of writing by over 200 women of African descent will be celebrated at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre with an evening of literature, poetry and prose by women of Caribbean heritage.

Twenty-five years ago, Margaret Busby’s anthology Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim and hailed as ‘an extraordinary body of achievement… a vital document of lost history’ (Sunday Times). New Daughters of Africa builds on this rich tradition for a new generation of women writers in the landscape of African women’s writing today.

New Daughters of Africa contributors Zadie Smith, Andrea Stuart, Dorothea Smartt and Candice Carty-Williams will be reading from the book alongside editor Margaret Busby. There will be time for questions at the end of the event and a chance to buy a copy of New Daughters of Africa.

Tickets cost just £8-10 and are available via the venue website HERE.
