There is an unparalleled, as far as I have seen, imprint called Voice of Witness to which I call your attention:
The books in the Voice of Witness series seek to illuminate human rights crises by humanizing the victims. By allowing them to tell their stories, we seek to engender greater understanding. These books will be designed for readers of all levels—from high school and college students to policymakers—interested in a reality-based understanding of ongoing injustices in the United States and around the world.
So far, Voice of Witness has produced three books—Surviving Justice: America’s Wrongfully Convicted and Exonerated, Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath, and Underground America: Narratives of Undocumented Lives. The fourth book in the series, Out of Exile: The Abducted and Displaced People of Sudan will be released this fall.
Right now I’m obviously thinking most about Voices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath.
Please take a look.
