Drowning

My hope is that this book will make people realize that ignorance and racism is not only the province of the uneducated, that racism is a very real and daily part of our experience. The text for this book is a comment made in 2008 by an academic advisor at my university, a person who has a master’s degree. It was said to me and two of my coworkers, one of whom is black. I couldn’t believe my ears and still can’t believe she said this. The experience was so powerful that I can’t let it go. It’s up to us to work for a positive change. We have a lot of work to do.

Accordion binding plus cover. Letterpress, linocut. Printed on the Vandercook SP-15 on French paper. 7 pages. 4.5 x 6.25 x .25 inches. 2009. Edition of 50. $150
