Publisher Comments:

Advance praise for "YO SOY LATINA!"

"Genius. "YO SOY LATINA!" is a work of art and a pioneering journey to voice the different Latino races and cultures." --Raul Gonzales, "Mas Ruido

""YO SOY LATINA!" indeed. Nieves-Powell skillfully and honestly renders the varying experiences faced by all women of color." --Jimmie Briggs, "The New York Amsterdam News

In this critically acclaimed play by author Linda Nieves-Powell, six women from varying Latino sub-cultures arrive at a "What is a Latina?" seminar in hopes of understanding their culture's impact on their lives. It doesn't take long for each woman to offer her unique perspective on men, jobs, family, and Latino society.

Their dialogue offers an honest view of the challenges and struggles that Latino women face. As they seek a solution to the question, "What is a Latina?" they discover the answer must come from within. This soul-searching provides the strength they need to express themselves--and their culture--in a positive light.

Also included is a narrative version of "YO SOY LATINA!" In this version, Nieves-Powell reveals candid thoughts on her motivation in writing the play and delves deeply into the world of Latino women.
