Summary, etc.:
"In this twenty-year reboot of Neely and Abif 1996 In Our Own Voices, fifteen of the original contributors revisit their stories alongside fifteen new voices. This Collective represents a wide range of life and library experiences, gender fluidities, sexualities, races, and other visible and invisible identities. Their essays bring honesty, vulnerability, authenticity, and power to the diversity conversation in libraries and beyond. More importantly, these voices, from a variety of races, ethnicities, genders and sexualities, matter." -- Publisher
