    1. Below is an excerpt from Making Face, Making Soul: Critical Perspectives by Women of Color:“¡LA CULTURA! ¡LA RAZA!Sometimes all it means to me is suffering. Tragedy. Poverty. Las caras de los tortured santos y las mujeres en luto, toda la vida en luto. La miseria is not anything I want to remember and everything I cannot forget. Sometimes the bravery in facing and struggling in such life is too little. The courage with which a people siguen luchando against prejudice and injustice is not glo [...]

    2. "Violent responses in any form they take are accomplices to the wills which have created the need. The availability of drugs is not the problem or the dealer down on 122nd street. They are only players in a far more complex value system of booth which nurtures self-hatred.

    4. This was one of the texts for a women's studies course I took many years ago. Unlike most of my texts, I was fond enough of the poetry that I chose not to sell it back at the end of the class. I've used selections from it in classes I have taught since then.

    5. The first time I fell in love, we read Not Editable by Chrystos together. Fiction, poetry, academic prose, and letters from the heart--Haciendo Caras continues to be a source of power and beauty for me.

    6. My only disappointment was that there was a complete lack of pieces by or about trans women. Gender is never discussed outside of cisnormativity, and sexual orientation mostly talked about from a lesbian standpoint. Other than this, excellent collection of poetry/essays/short stories!
