WHO WE ARE
AfroChicano Press® is a niche press dedicated to preserving stories told by people who speak from intersectional experiences of race, class, culture, gender, and sexuality. AfroChicano Press® advocates self-representation and promotes literature that explores the self as subject within a sociocultural context.
Ordinary people telling extraordinary stories.
To tell our own stories and help others tell theirs.
We believe everyone has a story worth telling and the personal stories of our lives intersect with the universal stories of human experience.
We believe individuals can tell their own stories, from their own perspectives, and in their own voices.
We believe authors/scholars can collaborate with individuals who desire support expressing their stories and that collaboration can be achieved in a manner that maintains the subject’s individual power.
AfroChicano Press® is committed to high quality literature whose production and sale positively impacts authors, readers, the local community and the world.
