Soundless Cries Don't Lead to Healing: A Critical Thinking Guide to Cultural Consciousness
After 8 years of teaching and 3 years blogging and writing for other publications, Valencia is finally ready to release her first book! Soundless Cries Don’t Lead to Healing: A Critical Thinking Guide to Cultural Consciousness pushes the reader to be honest with who they are and how their personal experiences have shaped their perceptions of others. It is a resource for analyzing current events related to social justice, race, equity, and other provocative topics that one may find themselves in too much of a perplexed state of silence to discuss. It includes tools for self-reflection, inquiry, and engaging in productive discourse, which will prepare the reader to speak out on today’s issues in an informed way, based on their own experiences, while still conveying an unbiased stance. With the artistic development of Siobhan Vicens, Soundless Cries Don’t Lead to Healing has been designed to be used anywhere from the classroom to a coffee shop. Join us for an evening discussion and celebration of Valencia's very first book release!
