March is National Women’s History Month
This wonderful recognition also creates a special opportunity in our schools, our workplaces, and our communities to recognize and celebrate the often-overlooked achievements of American women. That’s why we want to call your attention to an amazing book about epic women.
“All the Women in My Family Sing” – a necessary read for every American as it offers hope and encourages equality by showing readers how very alike we are, no matter our gender, skin color, religion, or age. I’d like to send you a copy of the book to review or feature. Deborah Santana is also available for interviews or to provide commentary if needed.
This year brought conversations about gender and racial inequality to the forefront. From the recent synagogue shooting, to the Kavanaugh hearings, to the numerous cases of gender and racial discrimination, the time is up for injustice! People of all ages, races, and sexual orientations need to see their human rights respected and this starts by having compassion for those whose paths we have not walked.
All the Women in My Family Sing helps build bridges of understanding that our culture so desperately needs right now. The anthology is a collection of prose and poetry by 69 diverse women (African American, Native American, Asian American, Muslim, Cameroonian, Kenyan, Liberian, Mexican American, Korean, Chinese American and LGBTQI) from ages 16 to 77.
ABOUT THE BOOK AND CONTRIBUTORS
ll the Women in My Family Sing 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. These brief, trenchant essays capture the aspirations and wisdom of women of color as they exercise autonomy, creativity, and dignity and build bridges to heal the brokenness in today’s turbulent world.
Sixty-nine authors — African American, Asian American, Chicana, Native American, Cameroonian, South African, Korean, LGBTQI — lend their voices to broaden cross-cultural understanding and to build bridges to each other’s histories and daily experiences of life. America Ferrera’s essay is from her powerful speech at the Women’s March in Washington D.C.; Natalie Baszile writes about her travels to Louisiana to research Queen Sugar and finding the “painful truths” her father experienced in the “belly of segregation;” Porochista Khakpour tells us what it is like to fly across America under the Muslim travel ban; Lalita Tademy writes about her transition from top executive at Sun Microsystems to NY Times bestselling author.
This anthology is monumental and timely as human rights and justice are being challenged around the world.
