New Daughters of Africa
Margaret Busby (editor)
(UK: Myriad Editions, @MyriadEditions, 2019)

Showcasing the work of more than 200 women writers of African descent, this major international collection celebrates their contributions to literature and international culture.

Twenty-five years ago, Margaret Busby wrote a groundbreaking anthology Daughters of Africa illuminated the ‘silent, forgotten, underrated voices of black women’ (Washington Post). Published to international acclaim, it was hailed as ‘an extraordinary body of achievement … a vital document of lost history’ (Sunday Times).

New Daughters of Africa continues that mission for a new generation, bringing together a selection of overlooked artists of the past with fresh and vibrant voices that have emerged from across the globe in the past two decades, from Antigua to Zimbabwe and Angola to the USA.
