Overview

A celebratory 20th anniversary edition of this landmark collection from black writers across the literary spectrum A celebratory 20th anniversary edition of this landmark collection from black writers across the literary spectrum This ground-breaking anthology was first published twenty years ago, into a different literary landscape. Showcasing the work of more than 100 black British authors, this 20th anniversary edition celebrates their lasting contributions to literature and to our wider culture. Including poetry from Roger Robinson, David Dabydeen, Bernardine Evaristo, Jackie Kay and Benjamin Zephaniah, short stories from Ferdinand Dennis, Diana Evans, Catherine Jonson, E.A. Markham and Ray Shell; essays from Floella Benjamin, Linda Bellos, Treva Etienne, Kevin Le Gendre and Labi Siffre; memoirs from Margaret Busby, Henry Bonsu, Buchi Emecheta, Sol B. River and Leone Ross, and many others. IC3 spans a wealth of genres - from poetry, to short fiction, memoir and essays - to demonstrate the range and astonishing literary achievements of black writers, who remain underrepresented in British culture today. Featuring a new introduction from original editors Kadija Sesay and Courttia Newland, this collection reflects on the legacy of these writers and their extraordinary work.
