Daughters of Africa

An International Anthology of Words and Writings by Women of African Descent from the Ancient Egyptian to the Present

Margaret Busby



Daughters of Africa is a monumental achievement because it is the most comprehensive international anthology of oral and written literature by women of African descent ever attempted. The anthology is exhaustive in scope and expansive in voice because it encompasses authors from the Caribbean, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia and translations from African, French, German, Dutch, Russian, and Turkish languages.
