Twenty-five years ago, Margaret Busby wrote a groundbreaking anthology of writing from the African diaspora hailed as ‘a vital document of lost history’ (The Sunday Times). Now New Daughters of Africa continues that mission for a new generation, bringing together a selection of vibrant voices from across the globe. She’s joined by our guest writer from Aké Arts and Book Festival and alumnus of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Creative Writing Workshop, poet and journalist Wana Udobang. Chaired by Rosie Goldsmith.
