“This is a collection that will cause souls to be searched and minds to be expanded. Its diamond-sharp words cut through more facile platitudes to a deeper understanding of what it means to be human, living on the continent now known as North America, and alive in these astounding and troubled times.” —Rev. Leslie Takahashi Morris, co-minister, Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church in Walnut Creek, California.
An eloquent chorus of voices from a variety of backgrounds. With unflinching honesty, well-known and emerging poets help us walk in their shoes as they struggle to claim authentic identity in today’s culture.

Paula Cole Jones is the founder of ADORE (A Dialogue on Race & Ethnicity), a former president of DRUUMM (Diverse and Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries) and an independent consultant specializing in multicultural competencies and institutional change. She lives in Washington, D.C.
