Publisher's Summary

Part of the #TwentyIn2020 collection for Black British writing, In Her Voice is an anthology that celebrates five poetry collections. This includes Locating Strongwoman by Tolu Agbelusi, Where the Memory Was by Hibaq Osman, Jamakespeare by Brenda Garrick, The First Collection by Sarah Lipton-Sidibeh and On Reflection by Adjoa Wiredu.

‘In these five poetry collections Black women navigate different stages of life. Adjoa Wideru takes us through school, Sarah Lipton Sidibeh maps the body through ageing, Tolu Agbelusi interrogates the strong Black woman stereotype, Brenda Garrick inserts Jamaican patois into Shakespeare’s work which was studied by both the young and old, and Hibaq Osman uncovers intergenerational conversations. The range of poetic voices in these five collections remind us that Black British women have a range of stories to tell and their individual experiences are nuanced.’ (Theresa Lola)

With an exclusive introduction from poet and writer Theresa Lola, the Young People's Laureate for London, 2019-2020.

A Brilliant Anthology

I liked everything about this anthology, more so because I could relate to some of these experiences. I smiled, I teared up; these poems evoked all sorts of emotions. I absolutely enjoyed each poet's narration , I have my favourites too. In all, this IS a brilliant anthology.
