We Are Meant to Rise
More Than A Single Story is proud to present our anthology We Are Meant to Rise: Voices for Justice form Minneapolis to the World.
Co-edited by David Mura and MTASS founder Carolyn Holbrook with writer contributors from the Twin Cities metro area, this book shares a powerful collection of reflections, thoughts and memories about the traumas we endured in 2020. Indigenous writers and writers of color bear witness to the COVID-19 pandemic, the blatant murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and the uprisings in Minneapolis that immersed our city into the worldwide demands for justice.
Where to get the book:
You can find a copy at a local independent bookstore in Minnesota. You can also purchase it online from our publisher.
We are excited to co-host a series of amazing book events and panel discussions all around this anthology.

“Consistently moving…. passionate take on a fraught moment.”
“a triumph of story-telling, a panoply of experiences drawn from the diverse peoples of Minnesota. But it also raises the fundamental questions that all of us confront as Americans.”
