New Anthology: “Our Voices Our Stories”


Press Release

NEW ANTHOLOGY ADVANCES, CELEBRATES, EMBRACES AND EMPOWERS GIRLS AND WOMEN OF COLOR.

 

NEW JERSEY. September 1, 2019.  The National Girls and Women of Color Council, Inc. (NGWCC),  a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in Jersey City announced the publication of their first anthology, “Our Voices Ours Stories: An Anthology of Writings Advancing, Celebrating, Embracing and Empowering Girls and Women of Color.” The edited anthology contains biographies, essays, poems, short stories and other writings authored by girls, teens, women and men of color. The editorial team included Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth, editor, and Dr. Lata Murti and Ms. Lisa Maria Culbreth, assistant editors.

The diverse national and international voices represented in the anthology focus on the psychological, emotional, physical and social issues, traumas and challenges experienced by girls, teens and women of color. The writings will encourage society to understand what it means to be a girl, teen and woman of color living in a society that does not always listen to hear their voices or their stories.

According to Dr. Culbreth, “we are trailblazing a path as torchbearers to change the narrative about the value and importance of the voices and stories of girls, teens and women of color by advancing, celebrating, embracing and empowering them. We are celebrating their lives, their dreams, their aspirations, their voices, their stories, and their will to keep rising to the top despite enduring unique challenges. When we celebrate girls, teens and women of color, we are embracing them and that embrace empowers them to advance and reach for the stars.”

In celebration of the publication of the anthology, NGWCC hosted the “Our Voices Our Stories” talk radio mini-series on Visibility, the official talk radio program of NGWCC. The mini-series consisted of five episodes focusing on the theme of the anthology and guests included authors who contributed to the anthology. The archive of the mini-series is available on NGWCC’s website.

“Our Voices Our Stories” is a fundraiser of NGWCC and is available for purchase on the website of NGWCC
