Dominique Christina & Denice Frohman - "No Child Left Behind"

"The first time I read a book by a Latina author was in college. The wind in my chest stood up.  It had been 18 long years of text books filled with everything but me. For the first time my body knew a world that could hold it.  See, the quickest way to silence a mouth is to treat it as if none had come before." - Denice Froham

"There are thousands of unreported lynching's that happen in American classrooms each year. The victims are between the ages of five and 19.  They are black and brown and gay and poor and different and other and not enough and too much." - Dominique Christina
