USA Today Review: All The Women In My Family Sing

In their common pursuits of acceptance, friendship and social justice, these writers demonstrate that there are truths and desires that transcend lines of color, sexuality and class. In sounding common chords of humanity, their voices, together, create a mighty chorus.

The essay collection, edited by Deborah Santana, features the words of 69 women of color who pen stories that are sometimes spare, at times witty, and often pungent to chronicle their feelings about their places in the world.  

The essayists' diversity extends beyond ethnicity. They are budding writers and celebrated novelists, incarcerated grandmothers and icons of social justice. The collection carries the voices of indigenous Americans as well as those of the global diaspora that many believe is America’s glory.
