HEALING THE DIVIDE: “This anthology features poems by Mark Doty, Ross Gay, Donald Hall, Marie Howe, Naomi Shihab Nye and many others. These poets, from all walks of life, and from all over America, prove to us the possibility of creating in our lives what Dr. Martin Luther King called the “beloved community,” a place where we see each other as the neighbors we already are. Healing the Divide urges us, at this fraught political time, to move past the negativity that often fills the airwaves, and to embrace the ordinary moments of kindness and connection that fill our days.”

Jesús Guillén, Sofía Torres McKay and Miguel Lopez are forming an organization to increase appreciation of these skilled laborers, helping them overcome challenges to realize their ambitions.” Written By: D.
