WHO WE ARE
AfroChicano Press® is a niche press dedicated to producing literature that documents the experiences of people of mixed African/Mexican ancestry and addresses topics important to the African American and Chicano communities (race, class, culture, gender, sexuality and diversity). Advocates of self-representation, AfroChicano Press® 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.
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.
