Rhythm and Hues — Twenty-Three Stories of Hardship and Hope is a collection of stories that explore the challenges and triumphs experienced by marginalized communities. In America, hardship and hope are strange bedfellows that often travel in tandem through many communities of color. From families and friends mourning the loss of loved ones taken too soon to youngsters striving to achieve through difficulties not of their own making, these pages lift the veil and offer the hued reader a look at the sometimes familiar. They also offer the non-hued reader some understanding of how communities often burdened by crosses so heavy manage time and again to summon the strength to continue looking upward.
