Before Them, We

Before Them, We is an anthology that explores the lives of grandparents and elders before the families they went on to establish, digging deep into those narrative of their lives that are lesser known: who they loved, where and why they migrated, why they had families. The result of a collaborative effort of poets of African descent to bring their personal stories in conversation with each other, the anthology is a poetic meditation on how we engage with the practice of memory.

…having discovered a poet’s work we are always delighted to find that they have been published by flipped eye… It means we can be confident that the poet has been rigorously edited and will have a book that’s beautifully designed and produced with care and attention.
