Sue Armstrong is a freelance writer and broadcaster specialising in development and health issues. Based in Southern Africa from 1988-96, and a regular visitor to the region since, she has written numerous articles, and made feature programmes for BBC radio about the Bushmen and their situation in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

As a consultant for the Panos Institute, she was involved in an oral history project with the Bushmen that explored their experience of displacement from their ancestral lands in the Central Kalahari. The Panos project became part of a much bigger, region-wide initiative that resulted in the book, Voices of the San, published in 2004. Sue remains actively interested in the Bushmen and their stories through her ongoing relationship with the Botswana-based NGO, the Kuru Development Trust.
