May 3 – Talking Back: Voices of Color Reading & Reception


Join Comrades of Color Caucus of Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party at Word Up, in celebrating the release of a new anthology, TALKING BACK: VOICES OF COLOR, which presents an unusually diverse group of writers speaking out on issues affecting communities of color. With an introduction and editing by Bay Area poet and social justice activist Nellie Wong, TALKING BACK features contributors—community organizers who identify as Asian/Pacific American, Black, indigenous North American and Aboriginal Australian, Latino, Palestinian, immigrant, feminist, youth, elder, LGBTQ, students, unionists, former prisoners, and more—who share tales of survival, explore little-known history, and offer insightful cultural reviews. Speaking from and to the grassroots, their offerings are readable, persuasive, free from academic jargon, and rich with personal experience.

Contributors Yolanda Alaniz, Emily Woo Yamasaki, and others will be present at the launch at Word Up.
