This major new international anthology celebrates the work of 200 women writers of African descent, captures their continuing contributions, and charts a contemporary literary landscape as never before.

A glorious portrayal of the richness and range of the singular and combined accomplishments of more than 200 contributors, New Daughters of Africa showcases their global sweep, diversity and achievements while also testifying to a wealth of genres: autobiography, memoir, letters, short stories, novels, poetry, drama, humour, journalism, essays and speeches.

Twenty-five years ago, Margaret Busby’s historical Daughters of Africa was published to international acclaim and hailed as ‘a landmark anthology’ (Lorna Sage), ‘an extraordinary body of achievement…a vital document of lost history’ (The Sunday Times), and ‘the ultimate reference guide’ (The Washington Post).

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.
