Short biography
Enid Margaret "Peggy" Cripps was the daughter of a British chancellor of the exchequer who defied the conventions of her time with her marriage and career. She studied art in Florence and then attended secretarial school at home. Peggy Cripps met the Ghanian law student and political activist Joseph Emmanuel Appiah in England in 1951 and announced their marriage two years later. The union of an aristocratic white woman and a Black political figure caused an international sensation at the time. She became the author of several children’s books, including The Pineapple Child and Other Tales from the Ashanti, Why There are So Many Roads, and Afua and the Mouse. Peggy Appiah was also the author of two adult novels as well as a volume of poetry and a collection of thousands of Ashanti proverbs. Widowed in 1990, she spent her remaining years in Ghana.
