An anthology of writings by over a hundred autistic people of color.
"What does autism have to do with race? It seems simple, but it is extremely complicated. I urge you to read this anthology and explore this in depth as you dive into the hearts of the authors. They are yellow, brown, red, black, and multi-hued; they are young and old; they share their purpose, their passion, and their pain. But before you embark on this journey, I have a "spoiler." On every page, in every account, from every contributor you will find one profound, universal theme threaded silently and artfully throughout the entire anthology. Again and again, you will find that the answer to the aforementioned question, now unspoken, "What does autism have to do with race?" is a gentle, but resounding, everything." -- back cover.
