Royal African Society: Africa Writes featuring New Daughters of Africa

Share

At this year’s Africa Writes festival, four contributors to New Daughters of Africa, Bernardine Evaristo, Nadifa Mohamed, Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀ and Namwali Serpell, join editor Margaret Busby in conversation to celebrate the global sweep, diversity and extraordinary literary achievements of Black women writers.

Featuring women across the diaspora, New Daughters of Africa illuminates the richness and cultural history of this original continent and its enduring influence, while reflecting our own lives and issues today. Bold and insightful, brilliant in its intimacy and universality, this essential volume honours the talents of African daughters and the inspiring legacy that connects them—and all of us.
