New Daughters of Africa edited by Margaret Busby

“And I say again, this doesn’t have to be solely about race or gender. We’re all at the junction of many worlds. It can concern race, class, sexuality, so many different things today. I wonder if there is anyone who, at some point in their life, hasn’t been identified outside of the realms of where they see themselves, or at some point hasn’t felt like an outsider.”

—Amma Asante

“We teach girls shame. Close your legs. Cover yourself. We make them feel as though by being born female they’re already guilty of something. Some girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. Who silence themselves. Who cannot say what they truly think. Who have turned pretence into an art form.”

—Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
