Essential Truths: The Bay Area in Color
Published June, 2021.*
Poetry, prose and artwork by 130 Black, Brown, Indigenous, and people of color – from poets laureate and published authors to high-school students and closet writers; from teachers and healthcare providers to the formerly unhoused. Reflecting on 2020, Seigel asks: What has it been like living with loss and uncertainty? What has tested and inspired you as a person of color or ally? What gives you the strength to keep going? How are you working for positive, sustainable change? What are the challenges, lessons and rewards of becoming part of the solution?
*Second printing expected December 2021. Some copies available in Bay Area bookstores (see menu).
6 x 9 inches, paperback, 312 pages, with many pages in color.
