Street Talk: a Dictionary of Progress

As part of the Backslang, Blandy produced a printed manuscript which was compiled and edited with the young people he was working with at The Avenues Youth Project. Street Talk can be seen as the beginning of a constantly mutating document, capturing the ever-changing slang used by young people. 

Compiled and edited by: David Blandy, Wayne Louis, Kusu Biti, Shauna Davis, Leon Emmanuel, Peter Emmanuel, Linda Ibrahim, Kamara Lionel and David Registe.
