POWERFUL WOMEN OF COLOR LEND VOICES IN NEW ANTHOLOGY
All the Women in My Family Sing: Women Write the World
— Essays on Equality, Justice, and Freedom.
Women of color have long been silenced even while social movements have flourished. All the Women in My Family Sing amplifies the voices of women and shows what it means to be a woman of color in today’s world. Sixty-nine authors, including America Fererra and Samina Ali, lend their voices to broaden cross-cultural understanding and to build bridges to each others’ histories and daily experiences of life.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
This new book from Nothing But The Truth Publishing, LLC is an anthology documenting the experiences of women of color at the dawn of the twenty-first century. It is a vital collection of prose and poetry whose topics range from the pressures of being the vice-president of a Fortune 500 Company, to escaping the killing fields of Cambodia, to the struggles inside immigration, identity, romance, and self-worth.
Contributors include America Fererra, Samina Ali, Natalie Baszile (Queen Sugar), Porochista Khakpour (Sons and Other Flammable Objects), Lalita Tademy (Cane River), Mila Jam, Marian Wright Edelman (Children’s Defense Fund), and many more.
WHY YOU NEED THIS BOOK:
This anthology is monumental and timely as human rights and justice are being challenged around the world. The essays in All the Women in My Family Sing show readers how very alike we are, no matter our skin color, ethnic heritage, or place we live. The essays give access to a symphony of experiences that women of color have in today’s world.
“This moving anthology of essays by women of color illuminates the struggles, traditions, and life views of women at the dawn of the 21st century. The 69 authors grapple with identity, belonging, self-esteem, and sexuality, among other topics.” – Publishers Weekly
“These brilliant and moving essays show the astonishing, brave, and passionate lives of women of color as they fight for autonomy, equality and love.” — Isabel Allende, author
“Impassioned writers bearing witness to survival, creativity, and hope.”– Kirkus Reviews
It is a watershed title, not only written, but produced entirely by women of color, including the publishing, editing, process management, book cover design, and promotions. Editor Deborah Santana is on a mission to empower underrepresented voices and to impact the world of publishing in America — particularly important in a time when 80% of people who work in publishing self-identify as white (as found recently in a study by Lee & Low Books, and reported on NPR).
