WRITING

SPEAKING

Esua’s memoir The Space Between Black and White charts the extraordinary story of her life, growing up in 1950s London as the mixed-race daughter of a single, white mother before connecting with her Ghanaian heritage in later life. Engaging and heart-warming, it illuminates Esua’s journey of self-discovery and uncovers truths that could help a new generation of mixed-race people.

The Space Between Black and White’ is a beautifully written, searingly honest, frank, emotional, and occasionally humorous roller-coaster of an autobiography. The writer lays bare the trials and tribulations, disappointments, successes and joys of her life during a long search for belonging and identity.
