Rooted in Freedom


Rooted in Freedom honours the expressions of Bla(c)k women writers currently residing within the Bibbulmun Nation. This collective body of work navigates the intersections between race, gender, personal narrative and the longing for freedom. It emerged from a series of writing workshops, guided by Dr Elfie Shiosaki, Brianne Yarran and N'Gadie Roberts, and was developed through the weaving of communities and the exchange of stories. This book is a celebration of Bla(c)k literature, a call for collective liberation and an offering of gratitude to the work of other Bla(c)k women who came before.
