COLONIZE THIS! YOUNG WOMEN OF COLOR ON TODAY’S FEMINISM

Daisy Hernandez Colonize ThisDaisy Hernandez grew up in New Jersey. “That’s still the most interesting part of my life. It’s where I heard the best stories about Cuba and Colombia and this lady who knows how to eat an avocado so you won’t get pregnant. It’s also where I learned about feminism, queer identity, and race in the Americas.

“With my comadre, the poet and author Bushra Rehman, I co-edited the anthology Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism. Of the book, author Rebecca Walker wrote, ‘These young women pick up where foremothers Audre Lorde and Gloria Anzaldúa left off.’ Colonize This! is taught in women studies classes alongside the classic works of feminist theories, but I’m still mostly proud that young women tell me they buy the book because it’s a good read. These days, I’m writing a memoir about all those crazy stories I heard back in Jersey.”

Bushra Rehman Colonize ThisBushra Rehman was a vagabond poet raveling for years with nothing more than a greyhound ticket and a book bag full of poems. She now performs her poetry regularly in theaters and colleges around the world. Lately, she’s been spending her time flying through the streets of Brooklyn and writing an on the road adventure novel for Muslim girls. Her first novel is forthcoming through Sibling Rivalry Press.

In her travels, Bushra met Daisy Hernandez and together they edited a book of essays titled Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism. Colonize This! has been adopted as essential reading material in women’s studies and ethnic studies classes around the United States. Rebecca Walker has called the book “a must for young women of color searching for themselves within contemporary feminist/womanist discourse, and anyone else who wants to get down with the fierceness of fly, intellectual divas of color.”
