In this inspirational volume of spoken word, social commentary, play, essay, and memoir, Ros Martin peels apart the onion layers of our deeply fragmented society. By presenting the author’s personal journey, the book throws a harrowing spotlight on issues behind racial inequality. It achieves what so many other titles neglect or fail to do: rendering visible the lives of the otherwise unnoticed or stereotyped black woman, man, and lowly other.
Pushing out from the margins, the author writes with a passion to engage readers in issues that continue to impact those in ethnically diverse communities and other marginalized backgrounds. Every passage rings with the call for social justice and equal empowerment, while celebrating lives of struggle in creativity, resistance, and survival.
