“Truly stunning! Stories and artworks by “creatives of color” bring readers to the edges of awareness, endurance and beauty. I love every voice!!”
— Deborah Santana, author, seeker, founder and
CEO of Do A Little non-profit

“Nothing short of amazing. On the surface, ENDANGERED SPECIES, ENDURING VALUES is a thoughtful and inclusive curation resulting in a necessary anthology. Beneath that surface is a collective voice that says, ‘We are San Francisco. We will not be erased!’”
—Truong Tran, poet, visual artist, educator

A treasure chest full of literary gems!
—Naomi Hirahara, author of the Mas Arai mysteries and
community-based nonfiction

Essays, memoir, fiction, visuals and poetry paint an honest, complex and personal picture of San Francisco area artists-of-color. Interdisciplinary, intergenerational and inspiring pieces illuminate how natives and immigrants, domestic and international, can shape a city.
—Elmaz Abinader, author, This House, My Bones,
co-founder and program director, VONA

The fact is, San Francisco and California are respectively white-minority city and state. You will be moved by this book chock full of seasoned writers of color and budding beginners of all ages.
—Dennis J. Bernstein, Executive Producer, Flashpoints, KPFA

Endangered Species, Enduring Values is a guide to the real San Francisco—a sampling of the seldom-heard 58% of the population that brings color and diversity to the city in every sense of the word. Writers and artists of color remain under-represented and underpublished even in the most diverse and progressive city in the country.

More than 150 pieces of prose, poetry and artwork by over 70 creatives of color with roots in Native America, Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and Europe. Contributors include established and emerging writers, poets, artists, physicians, educators, poets, performers, and activists for unions, LGBT, mental health, housing and more.
Supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission.
