The Anthology booklets reflect the creativity of children and teens that live in Ypsilanti where they attend weekly TELLING IT sessions at Parkridge Community Center and Ypsilanti Community Middle School. In the weekly TELLING IT sessions, youth engage in playful, imaginative and healing activities in uncensored, non-judgmental spaces. They take enormous pride in how these anthologies reflect their intrinsic selves as resilient and strong young people who want their voices to be heard. The anthology provides one platform for them to do that. My hope is that you can feel the vibrant energy of the children and teens through their writing and from their photographs.
