Please join us on Wednesday, November 18 at 7 pm for a reading by the Authors and Editors of Reclaiming Our Stories 2, as part of the Hugh C. Hyde Living Writers series. Panelists, including Khalid (Paul) Alexander, Manuel Paul Lopez, and Ebony Tyree, will share selections from the anthology and discuss its impact.
This event will be virtual.
Reclaiming Our Stories 2 continues the tradition of a literature—beginning with the slave narrative—that counters hegemony and white supremacy. Most of the authors are first-generation college students who have all survived and continue their struggle to overcome the constant challenges of being Black, Brown, and poor in San Diego. These narratives deal with complex issues encompassing race, class, place, family, mental and physical health, gender, disability, and identity. Above all, they are stories of life, loss, and determination to thrive.
