African writers respond to Bristol’s transatlantic slavery legacy by evoking the voices of three generations of women from one family, separated by the Atlantic ocean.

About

Daughters of Igbo Woman is a memorial installation using film and sound in remembrance of Fanny Coker (1767-1820). Fanny Coker was maidservant to Mrs Pinney at the Georgian House.

These installations mark 250 years since Fanny’s Coker’s birth on Nevis.

Fanny’s voice is created by Ros Martin in the UK. Her mother’s voice (Igbo Polly) is by Vida Rawlins in Nevis and her grandmother’s voice, (Igbo woman) is by Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo in Eastern Nigeria.
