Description

Essays on race, culture, and identity, Native Americans, the Latinx community, and more from the prolific writer, activist, bookseller, and LA's poet laureate. A collection of powerful pieces on race, culture, identity and belonging and what these all mean and should mean (but often fail to) in the volatile climate of our nation. Rodriguez has a distinctly inspiring passion and wisdom in his approach as he writes about current political and cultural unrest, about his own compelling background, and about his vision for America's future. Ultimately, the book carries the message that we must come together if we are to move forward. He reminds us in the first essay, The End of Belonging, "I'm writing as a Native person. I'm writing as a poet. I'm writing as a revolutionary working class organizer and thinker who has traversed life journeys from which incredible experiences, missteps, plights, and victories have marked the way...? belong anywhere." The pieces in The Story of Our Day capture that same, fantastic energy and wisdom and will spark conversation and inspiration.
