Daughters of Africa
Margaret Busby couldn’t find the book she wanted, so she created it with Daughter’s of Africa. More than a book, an act of resistance, a work of love, a gift. Samples of writing by Black women from all over the world, gathered and presented for delectation, for celebration, for the daughters of daughters.
An international anthology of words and writings by women of African descent–from the ancient oral tradition to the present. A monumental literary enterprise, it is the most inclusive anthology ever attempted of oral and written literature–in every conceivable genre–by women of African descent the world over.
“O, ye daughters of Africa, awake! awake! arise! no longer sleep nor slumber, but distinguish yourselves,
Show forth to the world that ye are endowed with noble and exalted faculties.”
