All the Women in My Family Sing

69 Short Stories Proving We Are More Alike Than We Are Different

This year brought conversations about gender and racial inequality to the forefront. From the recent synagogue shooting, to the Kavanaugh hearings, to the numerous cases of gender and racial discrimination, the time is up for injustice! People of all ages, races, and sexual orientations need to see their human rights respected and this starts by having compassion for those whose paths we have not walked. All the Women in My Family Sing helps build bridges of understanding that our culture so desperately needs right now. The anthology is a collection of prose and poetry by 69 diverse women (African American, Native American, Asian American, Muslim, Cameroonian, Kenyan, Liberian, Mexican American, Korean, Chinese American and LGBTQI) from ages 16 to 77.


From Nothing But The Truth Publishing, LLC this book is an anthology documenting the experiences of 69 diverse women at the dawn of the 21st century. It is a vital collection of prose and poetry 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.

Contributors include America Ferrera, Samina Ali, Natalie Baszile (Queen Sugar), Porochista Khakpour (Sons and Other Flammable Objects), Lalita Tademy (Cane River), Mila Jam, Marian Wright Edelman (Children’s Defense Fund), and many more.


All The Women in My Family Sing is a necessary read for Americans as it promotes understanding, equality, and love in a year plagued by gender and racial discrimination. These short stories of female empowerment are exactly the inspiration women need to stand strong in the face of injustice. From the recent synagogue shooting, to the Kavanaugh hearings, to the numerous cases of religious, gender and racial discrimination, this book gives people much needed real-life experiences of what it means to be a woman of color today. It offers hope by showing readers how very alike we are, no matter our gender, skin color, or age. 

While the subject matter of the book is powerful and inspiring, it is easily consumable. The stories are not sequential, each essay stands on its own, and can be read in one sitting. The format of this book makes it ideal for easy reading. 

All The Women in My Family Sing is a watershed title, not only written, but produced entirely by women of color, including the publishing, editing, process management, book cover design, and promotions. Editor Deborah Santana is on a mission to empower underrepresented voices and to impact the world of publishing in America — particularly important in a time when 80% of people who work in publishing self-identify as white (as found recently in a study by Lee & Low Books, and reported on NPR).

“A vivid ode to American identity in all its shades. In a time when the words “me too’’ have become a hashtag that signals solidarity among women, All the Women in My Family Sing illustrates how that phrase encompasses so much more.”
