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 eachothers' histories and daily experiences of life.

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.

To the moon and back: a childhood under the influence

Lisa Kohn was born in the Garden State, spent many years in New York City, and currently lives outside of Philadelphia (on the PA side), and would love to be included in Garden State Woman. In addition, with the general public so fascinated by cults, how prevalent cultish mentality is in society right now, and how much (I believe) we need a message of hope and love.
