SUMMARY

When Voices: Canadian Writers of African Descent was published in 1992, it offered a forum for an immensely talented group of Canadian writers. Such emerging writers as Lawrence Hill, Rozena Maart, George Elliott Clarke and Cecil Foster joined company with internationally renowned writers Daffy Laferriere and Austin Clarke.Fiery Spirits, published two years later, presented another gathering of gifted Canadian Writers of African descent, including Dionne Brand, Dee September, Martha Kumsa and Gerard Etienne. Now married in one seminal volume, Fiery spirits & Voices is a rich and vibrant celebration of the colorful quilt that is Canadian-African literature -- and an opportunity to explore some of the earlier work of this evolving and vital part of our literary community.These are short fiction pieces and poems that often push hard at the literary traditions that sometimes confine them. There are Works of romantic love and sexual abuse; of feminism and racism; of belonging and displacement. Bringing together shared history and a diversity of contemporary experience, Fiery Spirits & Voices is a powerful and often moving compilation.Black, Ayanna is the author of 'Fiery Spirits and Voices: Canadian Writers of African Descent', published 2000 under ISBN 9780006485216 and ISBN 0006485219.
