This book is a collection of reflective and celebratory poems based on phrases received from diverse graduating students for annual ethnic precommencement programs. From the selective works of several scholars, a young writer, and one who did not even participate in the programs, it gives insight into the thinking, feelings, beliefs, joys, values, and vision of contemporary students. It reflects how the next generation, the architects of tomorrow, envisioned their past and see their present and future roles as majority people. Individually and collectively, the book gives voice to an often-unheard silent youth. It evokes thoughts about the importance of involving diverse students in their education and todays matters. It serves as an instrument for reimagining a new generation of queens and kings to come. The destiny they foresee combined with rethinking a greater urgency and a renewed look at people of color is precursory, hopeful, and preparatory.
