    African Women Writing Resistance is the first transnational anthology to focus on women’s strategies of resistance to the challenges they face in Africa today. The anthology brings together personal narratives, testimony, interviews, short stories, poetry, performance scripts, folktales, and lyrics/5. Abstract. This chapter looks at the context and recent history of women’s writing in Africa, concentrating largely on Nigeria, considering the effects of a history of pre-literate oral storytelling, examining the cultural context of African women writers in Nigeria and Author: Gina Wisker.

    Forms of Resistance: South African Women's Writing During Apartheid. Every household in the fine suburb had several black servants -- trusted cooks faithful gardeners a shifting population of pretty young housemaids whose long red nails and pertness not only asserted the indignity of being undiscovered or out-of-work fashion models but kept hoisted a cocky guerrilla pride against servitude. The towering figure of South Africa’s liberation struggle began his autobiography in prison, his pages in tiny writing smuggled out by comrades. When he came out of jail in , and went on to become South Africa’s first black president in , he continued the work, and it is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand Mandela.

    What a great book. This collection of works from all of these amazing, strong and influential women was so powerful and impactful. Letters, essays, poems, short stories, speeches from an inspirational collection of black women spanning generations covering everything from racism, sexualization, slavery and bondage, loss to love, sisterhood, hope, activism, belonging and discovery/5(11).   While writing A Stranger’s Pose, my book of travel stories, I was attempting to situate it within a broad, mongrel genre. If a book by an African author conveyed the sense of a journey, or if travel across the continent informed the writing of a book, I included it in my portfolio of influences. One literary forebear is Amos Tutuola.
