Current Issue: Volume 1, Issue 3 (2019) Roots

This issue features literary and artistic work by people of color that explores the meaning and experience of "roots." What are "roots" for people of color in a white-dominated America? How do our roots benefit and complicate our experience as people of color, and how can they sometimes make us hurt? How can people of color relate to their "roots" when they feel constantly "uprooted" — when the traumas of historical immigration, colonialism, slavery, and even genocide constantly destroy their "roots"? The "Roots" issue seeks to explore some possible answers to these questions.
