An Anthology

African-American, Latino, and Asian-American writers tell their own stories of coming of age, coming out, and coming home.

The Writers

The writers range from young to old, including students, authors, recording artists, reality TV stars, veterans, doctors, lawyers, athletes, and activists.

The Music

We've created a musical playlist featuring 38 specially selected songs inspired by the stories in For Colored Boys.
