All the Women in My Family Sing is an anthology documenting the experiences of women of color at the dawn of the twenty-first century. It’s a vital collection of prose and poetry whose topics range from the pressures of being the vice-president of a Fortune 500 Company, to escaping the killing fields of Cambodia, to the struggles inside immigration, identity, romance, and self-worth. These 69 brief essays, including one by Nikki Abramson, capture the aspirations and wisdom of women of color as they exercise autonomy, creativity, and dignity and build bridges to heal the brokenness in today’s turbulent world.
The essay “Invisibility” by Nikki Abramson was my absolute favorite! — Katherine Kleffner, The NerdyGirlExpress [full review]
