You Are My Roots: Letters on Resistance, Resilience and Reimagination
Editors: Angelica Butiu Coronado and Sara Bardales
Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
-Tupac Shakur, The Rose That Grew From Concrete
