All the Women in My Family Sing
As human rights and justice are being challenged around the world, this monumental and timely collection of poetry and prose raises the voices of women of color. Join editor Deborah Santana and contributing authors in a presentation of All the Women in My Family Sing. In this dynamic evening, the authors will read from their essays, answer questions, and sign books.
All the Women in My Family Sing is an anthology documenting the lessons and experiences of women of color at the dawn of the twenty-first century. These brief, trenchant essays offer glimpses into the hard-fought struggle to exercise one’s autonomy, creativity and dignity. Whether regarding the workplace, the current restrictions on immigration into the U.S., the trauma of ill health, or the sadness of divorce, these essays capture the aspirations of women of color to live as full citizens of the world. In a time when rights are being taken away from people, these women stand in the power of inclusion, the right to self-identify, social justice and equality.
