Overview

We Flew over the Bridge: The Memoirs of Faith Ringgold by Faith Ringgold

'Faith Ringgold's memoir tells us what it means to pursue a personal vision, even if it opposes centuries of racial and sexual caste systems, is sometimes obscured by them, seems to make one's own children jealous, and often produces loneliness. In words that are as direct, honest, full of color and life as her painting, Ringgold gives each reader the greatest gift of all--courage to be one's unique and universal self.'--Gloria Steinem
