Immigrant and refugee students attending Foster High School in Tukwila, WA, one of the most ethnically and language-diverse high schools in the US, share visual poems and self-portraits in this moving anthology. Through extensive workshops with teaching artists, students find their voice and use art and poetry to express longing, loss, and hope connected to their experiences of forced migration and immigration. At times harrowing and heartbreaking, these poems and self-portraits are stark reminders of the horror of war, violence, poverty, environmental degradation, and injustice, but they are also a call for peace, hope, and a brighter future for all who leave home and arrive in a new country.
