Description
All the Women in My Family Sing is an anthology of essays which seeks to document the lived 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 while rejecting the notion of second-class status or citizenship. The essay topics are as wide-ranging as their authors: from prisons to science, from motherhood to overeating, from to gentrification to art, from refugee camps to abiding hope—each essay is a world unto itself. An escapee from the Cambodian Killing Fields writes about losing 37 family members, as well as her dreams of returning to school. An astrophysics post-doc discusses imposter syndrome and surprising virtues of mentoring oneself. A Filipina divulges the two phrases every Filipina aunt can be counted on uttering and every Filipino can count on dreading. Eighty authors in total—whether African-American, Asian-American, Mexican-American, Cameroonian, or LGBTQI—these voices contribute to broaden cross-cultural understanding and build bridges to knowledge and respect.
