Description - Overcoming Speechlessness by Alice Walker

Poet Alice Walker writes of her personal encounters with the cruelty and horror in Rwanda, Eastern Congo and Palestine/Israel through her work with Women for Women International and Code Pink and of finding her voice again after a period of speechlessness. Bearing witness to a range of depravity, Walker presents the stories of the individuals who have crossed her path and shared their tales of suffering and courage. Self-imposed silence has slowed global response to those suffering and with this book, Walker aims to redress the balance.
