Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to Her European Son

Expat Lesley-Ann Brown will have a new book published next year. Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to Her European Son will be available in paperback on –15 May 2018. 

A Trinidadian-American writer and activist explores motherhood, migration, identity, nationhood and how it relates to land, imprisonment, and genocide for Black and Indigenous peoples.

Decolonial Daughter: Letters from a Black Woman to Her European SonHaving moved to Copenhagen, Denmark from Brooklyn over 18 years ago, Brown attempts to contextualise her and her son’s existence in a post-colonial and supposedly post-racial world where the very machine of so-called progress has been premised upon the demise of her lineage. Through these letters, Brown writes the past into the present – penned from the country that has been declared “The Happiest Place in the World” – creating a vision that is a necessary alternative to the dystopian one currently being bought and sold.

Pre-order now in Europe or the US.
