TALKING BACK: VOICES OF COLOR is a dynamic anthology featuring voices of youth, political prisoners, immigrants, and history-makers. Essays by a multi-racial, intergenerational mix of 25 Black, Latino, Native American, and LGBTQ community organizers. Topics include quality education and environmental justice, indigenous land rights and international solidarity, film and book reviews, hidden histories of women of color, and tales of endurance and survival.You KNOW something's worth reading when it's banned by Texas prison censors! TALKING BACK: VOICES OF COLOR was refused delivery to Chicano political prisoner Alvaro Luna Hernandez because of the anthology's article on prisoners' strike that took place in Georgia in 2010. Censors claim that the piece by former political prisoner Mark Cook "contains material that a reasonable person would construe as written solely for the purpose of communicating information designed to achieve a breakdown of prisons through offender disruption such as strikes, riots or security threat group activity." Hell yeah! Read it and be inspired!
