About the editors:
Clementine Burnley was born and raised in Cameroon. She has worked as a (critical) development researcher and consultant for long periods in England, Italy and Germany. Writing is something she came to quite late in life. Now she writes because she feels she has to. Clementine is a proud mother to three reflective and wise young women. In her work and life she continues to learn from the active people around her how to live joyfully within a destructive system.
Sharon Dodua Otoo is a Black British mother, activist, author and editor of the English language book series 'Witnessed'. Sharon's first novella 'the things i am thinking while smiling politely' was published in English in 2012 and appeared in German as 'die dinge, die ich denke, während ich höflich lächele' in 2013 (both also in edition assemblage). She lives, laughs and works in Berlin.
