Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed is a treasure trove of essays and poems.
"Write with your eyes like painters, with your ears like musicians, with your feet like dancers. You are the truthsayer with quill and torch. Write with your tongues of fire." - Gloria Anzaldua
Wild Tongues Can't Be Tamed is a treasure trove of essays and poems. 15 voices from the Latinx diaspora collaborated and tied their distinct identities into each essay. Debut authors alongside literary canons share their personal stories, perspectives, historical facts and issues within a very diverse Latinx culture. Well-crafted overarching themes that will undoubtedly educate those who dare to question one's gender, race and ethnic inclusion, all the while dismantling stereotypes, capturing the beauty and diversity of the Latinx diaspora. Each essay proves the importance of storytelling in sharing familial and cultural history in an effort to educate the younger generation, dismantle stereotypes and build community. This book is even more exceptional in that it will be used in schools allowing Afro Latinx and Latinidads to claim space, be included and see themselves within these pages.
