    Voices of Color: Original Writings Rooted in Authentic Experience is an anthology of powerful personal narratives from young adults of color. Written over a span of twenty five years, the collection provides insight into the world as they experience it, described in their own words and on their own terms.

    The selections are by turns joyous, heart-wrenching, wise, sassy, humorous, hopeless, hopeful, tragic, and triumphant. They address timeless issues of respect and justice, and personal experiences of love, loss, and aspiration. They shed light on the often underrepresented voices of those too often subjected to stereotyping or victimized by misinformed assumptions. Each chapter includes thought-provoking questions that allow readers to explore their responses and consider how the works relate to their own experiences.

    Voices of Color is an exciting addition to classes on diversity, African-American studies, and social justice as well as an ideal choice for courses in multicultural literature or teacher education. It is also a moving reading experience for anyone interested in exploring authentic young voices speaking to their part of the American experience.
