HIDDEN SUSSEX A NEW ANTHOLOGY FOR SUSSEX
Ever heard 'Black people don't go camping' or 'Black people don’t eat pasta?'
This new Writing Our Legacy anthology aims to debunk outdated but still current stereotypes of Black people through a reimagining of the Sussex landscape
from the Black, Asian and minority ethnic perspective.
Twenty-three contributors from across East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton tell their own stories and narratives.
The anthology tells stories of many firsts – first trip to Afro-Caribbean hairdressers, first sexual awakenings, first visit to the Chattri Memorial.
The writing also deals with middles and ends – raising children, solitary pursuits, and the deaths of friends and family.
We are transported to local places of interest such as Cuckmere Haven and Brighton Pavilion, and also elsewhere – to Pakistan, India, Iran.
Some authors deal with pressing issues of contemporary Britain, including Brexit and the Windrush scandal, while others cast their eye over
history and the natural environment.
