Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines

Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines

The boundaries in our lives are fictitious, self-imposed, and as real as we make them. The intersections of sexuality, race, activism, love, and ambition all overlap in motherhood and in this book, an anthology of poetry and a collection of power.

Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines is juicy, gutsy, vulnerable, and very brave. These women insist on having their children in a society that does not welcome them, in a world that is rapidly falling apart. Their dream for their children, based on their love of them, encompasses the sorrow and the joy that mothers everywhere, whether human, animal, or plant, feel at this time. A radical vision, many radical visions of how to mother in a time of resistance and of pain.”
—Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and activist
