#OTGYpsi: Uniting Women Of Color Through The Art Of Poetry

Mar 27, 2019

Throughout the decades, women of color have faced many challenges, whether it's a result of their culture, upbringing, or surroundings.  So, a group of Washtenaw County women formed a project called "Untold Stories of Liberation and Love," which allows such women to share their experiences through poetry.  WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg learn all about this collaborative from two of its co-founders, Maria Ibarra-Frayre and Julie Quiroz, in this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
