In the word’s of our featured author, Nadine Plummer:
This #poeticpiece was inspired by the struggles, survival and stories I have heard, read and still see today, of Black women who had immigrated to the UK and/or born in the UK only to be treated as the Other; yet still forced to assimilate and work in harsh conditions to elevate white ivory systems, institutions and beliefs.
This is one of the longest pieces I have written and the first piece I ever put into audio.
It is powerful, relatable and honest. It speaks of a truth that has been plaguing us as a generational cursed but we will and are slowly prevailing. Our strength, honour and dignity will dismantle this unforgiving perception of what we are “good for”.
