11: Cultural diversityBy Stella Cardus
More recent QueenSpark publications have featured the different communities that have made Brighton & Hove their home for many years.
Published in 2005, 'Missing the Nile' examines the customs and culture of the Sudanese community living in the Brighton & Hove area. Written in both English and Arabic, it is accessible to a wide audience including the second generation of the Sudanese community.
'Bangla Brighton' (2006) is a series of moving true life accounts of life on the South coast by Brighton & Hove's Bangladeshi community. At times heartbreaking, but always full of hope, these stories offer the reader a glimpse into a fascinating culture.
Also published in 2006, 'The Faith Project' used oral history and video work to help members of the Sudanese Coptic, Muslim and Progressive Jewish communities to collate a history of how and why the followers of these faiths arrived in Brighton and the traditions and customs that they brought with them.
