This review is from: Unheard Voices: An Anthology of Stories and Poems to Commemorate the Bicentenary Anniversary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade (Paperback)
Although aimed at teenagers, this is a great addition to anyone interested in black historical and fictional literature. This is a collection of stories and poems to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Britain, edited by Malorie Blackman,she has alson penned a powerful and moving story called North. I had a great introduction to this book, when I attended a local library launch with readings by one of the contributors Sandra Agard. It does include many Afro American stories, and I would of liked more from black british writers, but it soon becomes clear that our histories and experiences are closily linked, and any opportunity to introduce Langston Hughes poetry to teenagers and beyond shouldn't be missed.

This review is from: Unheard Voices: An Anthology of Stories and Poems to Commemorate the Bicentenary Anniversary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade (Paperback)
I love Malorie Blackman's work and whilst this is different I was not disappointed. The stories are all compelling and made good reading despite covering such a painful time in human history.

These short stories are easy to read and really highlight some of the issues.
Both I and my 12 year old enjoyed the book.
