Twenty-five years after Margaret Busby's historical Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim - this companion volume brings together the words of writers from across the globe - Antigua to Zimbabwe, Angola to the USA - to honour a unifying heritage while showing the remarkable range of creativity from the African diaspora. Arranged chronologically, New Daughters of Africa illustrates an uplifting sense of sisterhood and the links that endure from generation to generation, as well as common obstacles writers still negotiate around issues of race, gender and class.
