Early life and career

Dadzie was born in London to an English mother and Ghanaian father. She is a founder member of Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent. The Heart of the Race: Black Women’s Lives in Britain was published in 1985 by Virago Press. The book had been commissioned by the publisher five years before in 1980. The authors relied on interviews and their stories are woven together to address the experiences of Black women in Britain and the development of the UK's Black Women's Movement. The Heart of the Race won the 1985 Martin Luther King Award for Literature.

Dadize has written widely on curriculum development and good practice with black adult learners, and the development of anti-racist strategies with schools, colleges and youth services.
