Women of color have never had the luxury of simply focusing on women’s issues. Intersections of race, racism, and economic and social injustices have always intertwined with issues of patriarchy and sexism. We who hold feminist beliefs are also acutely aware of how our communities, broadly defined, are affected by outside forces. The issues facing women of color are too important to ignore, and if we’re going to drive into a better future, let us make sure we know who is riding with us. In this unit connect and learn from these wonderful womanists and mujeristas boldly sharing lessons as they link arms and souls.

A poetic writer of many genres, she’s received a MacArthur “genius grant,” a National Medal of Arts, and many other accolades. Cisneros grew up in an immigrant household where it was assumed, she would marry as her primary destiny.
