Edited by AnaLouise Keating and Gloria González-López

Gloria Anzaldua taught me that to change the world, I must first change myself. Her powerful thinking and writing have transformed the lives of thousands. This collection allows some of those she changed to reflect on Anzaldua’s work in the context of their own lives. Bridging is the perfect title for this work—it reflects Anzaldua’s unique ability to combine the academic and social-justice worlds in a way that allows all of us to cross into a better place. Yes, this book is a little “theoretical,” but the gut-wrenchingly honest writing of people willing to make themselves vulnerable so that all of us can cross is a major gift to the world.
