Deborah Santana and Guest Contributors
March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
All the Women in My Family Sing: Women Write the World: Essays on Equality, Justice, and Freedom, edited by Deborah Santana, is a collection of essays written by numerous contributors. It is an anthology of prose and poetry documenting the experiences of women of color at the dawn of the twenty-first century whose topics range from the pressures of being the vice-president of a Fortune 500 Company, to escaping the killing fields of Cambodia, to the struggles inside immigration, identity, romance, and self-worth. Deborah Santana is an author, business manager, and activist for peace and social justice. Her non-profit, Do A Little, serves women and girls in the areas of health, education, and happiness. With a passion to provide educational opportunities for girls and women, Ms. Santana collaborates with organizations that work to prevent and heal relationship and sexual violence, improve the lives of America’s abused and neglected children, and a worldwide community of artists and allies who work for empowerment, opportunity, and visibility for women artists. In 2005, she published her memoir: Space Between the Stars that told of her of her experiences growing up as a bi-racial child, and her coming of age. Ms. Santana has produced five short documentary films, four with Emmy-award winning director Barbara Rick: Road to Ingwavuma, Girls of Daraja, School of My Dreams, and Powerful Beyond Measure. These films highlight the work of non-profit partners in South Africa, and the Daraja Academy, a free secondary boarding school for girls in Kenya. Don’t miss this powerful event. Guest contributors, to be announced, will be participating in this event.
