Making Face, Making Soul Haciendo Caras: Creative and Critical Perspectives by Women of Color

Front Cover
Aunt Lute Books, 1990 - Education - 402 pages
A bold collection of creative pieces and theoretical essays by women of color. New thought and new dialogue: a book that will teach in the most multiple sense of that word: a book that will be of lasting value to many diverse communities of women as well as to students from those communities. The authors explore a full spectrum of present concerns in over seventy pieces that vary from writing by new talents to published pieces by Audre Lorde, Joy Harjo, Norma Alarcon and Trinh T. Minh-ha. "At one level or another, all the work in the collection seeks to find ways to understand and articulate our multiple identities and senses of placea?|. Making Face/Making Soul is an exciting collection of dynamic, important writings that all women of color and white feminists will learn from, enjoy, and return to again and again and again."- Sojourner "...the pieces are stunning in what they risk and reveal..."- The San Francisco Chronicle
