"At one level or another, all the work in the collection seeks to find ways to understand and articulate our multiple identities and senses of place....Making Face/Making Soulis an exciting collection of dynamic, important writings that all women of color and white feminists will learn from, enjoy, and return to again and again and again."-Sojourner

This is the necessary companion volume to the groundbreaking text, Este Puente Mi Espalda (This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color), edited by Gloria Anzaldúa and Cherríe Moraga.

Haciendo Caras brings further depth and dimension to the critical and literary voices of women of color. New voices create a harmonious chorus with the leaders of these fields, making for a perfect read.

Many of our most vital leaders, including Gloria Anzaldúa, have passed away, in recent years. This book is both legacy and future: bring it to your home, your heart, your classrooms.
