The anthology includes 22 poets who were asked by the co-editors to help counter hate and ignorance. Notes on and examples from mentors and writers who influenced them, these 77 poems, translations, and essays speak to the role and power of poetry (and the arts) to create awareness, foster empathy, and produce change and transformation in the reader and the listener.
