challenging dark emotional medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes


A history of the British slave trade and the wealth it generated which prioritises the voices and experiences of black women. A mix between a play and poetry, with characters who are united but retain their individuality. This should be required reading in all British high schools.
