Successful black writers tell their stories - Delia Jarrett Macauley


Writer and broadcaster Delia Jarrett Macauley won the 2005 Orwell Prize for her novel on child soldiers in Africa called "Moses, Citizen and Me". She has also written a biography of Una Marson, who was probably one of the earliest black broadcasters on the BBC in the 1930s and 40s. Delia was impressed by Una's drive and determination and the way the woman from the small community of Jamaica succeeded in London at a time of considerable prejudice.
