Summary
"Selected to represent a rich diversity of voices, styles, and genres, The Woman That I Am gathers 121 works of contemporary fiction, poetry, drama, autobiography, and cultural criticism by American women of color - African-American, Asian-American, Latina-American, and Native American."--BOOK JACKET. "Well-known writers such as Alice Walker, Louise Erdrich, Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, Jessica Hagedorn, Sandra Cisneros, Jamaica Kincaid, Toni Morrison, and others are presented side-by-side with authors whose works are rarely anthologized. The result is a wonderfully browsable book that offers a tapestry of thought, feeling, opinion, and lived experience from a range of women of color."--BOOK JACKET
