Inspirational Women: Personal Narratives

In the decade 2015-2024, which UNESCO declared the International Decade of People of African Descent, African Voices Forum, whose aim is to empower and support the development of people of African descent, takes the opportunity to recognise the incredible achievements of these women. This publication captures their stories, written in their own words; it goes through their journeys reflecting on where they started, the challenges and opportunities that they have experienced along their journeys, and their aspirations for future generations. The aim of this book is to celebrate these women and also to raise them above the mantelpiece; to recognise the diversity and breadth of their backgrounds in personal, professional and other respects. Most importantly African Voices Forum recognises that these women are role models in our society, who young black women in Bristol can look up to.
